Mac Shapland was a person who faced many physical and developmental challenges but always kept a positive attitude and was determined to do it his way.   Mac brought joy and laughter into everything he did, helping others see the best in life and the value of all people.

Mac and his family blazed many trails that impacted other families in Minnesota and across the country. In honor of Mac, the Shapland family has established Mac’s Fund to provide financial support for families whose children, youth or young adults have special health care needs and/or disabilities to assist with costs associated with unmet needs related to participating in or accessing activities that are not covered by other financial sources.

Care Mapping: An Essential Tool in Communicating with Your Child’s Healthcare Team

Monday July 23rd at 10:00 AM

Coordinating care for your child with special healthcare needs can be a full time job. There are often multiple medical and educational appointments and meetings to juggle, as well as completing all of the necessary paperwork. Additionally, parents typically have other responsibilities such as work, finances, other children and their own health and well-being. Using a tool called “Care Mapping” you can better understand how to balance all of your responsibilities AND improve communication with your child’s healthcare and education teams. In doing so, parents often find that members of their child’s teams are able to assist with these responsibilities.
