The National Foster Parent Association is a champion for the thousands of families that open their heart and their home to the over 400,000 children in out-of-home placement in the US.

NFPA believes in the importance of family-based care for foster children and that every child deserves a permanent family.

Graphic Resource From the National Foster Parent Association and the FASD Network

“Individuals with FASD may be over or under-sensitive to certain sensory inputs, meaning that they may be so focused on what they hear, see, or feel that they can’t focus on other things. Sensory processing impairments can affect an individual’s learning, physical functioning, and behavioural development. Here are just some of the sensory disabilities individuals with FASD may experience.”

Foster Care Reimbursements and Allowances Foster parents receive a monthly rate for the care of foster children. The regular foster care rate is provided to children who do not require unusual care and supervision. The foster parents would provide basic physical care, well-balanced meals, maintenance of home, clothing, supervision of child’s health and dental care and offer the attention and affection appropriate to the child’s age. Some children may require unusual care and supervision in a foster home. These children may exhibit extraordinary physical, emotional or behavioral issues. These might include physical handicaps, emotional disturbances, severe learning disabilities, etc. Foster parents that receive intermediate rates are required to participate in various treatment plans, trainings, provide prescribed physical care, and other tasks as deemed appropriate.

DHR: COMAR - Code of Maryland Regulations

Code of Maryland Regulations

The Code of Maryland Regulations, often referred to as COMAR, is the official compilation of all administrative regulations issued by agencies of the state of Maryland. Links to relevant sections of COMAR for Resource Parents and Child Welfare providers are provided in the COMAR Resourcessection below.

COMAR is arranged in Volumes with title number marked on each volume. Each title number represents a State department, e.g., Title 7 is the Department of Human Resources. COMAR regulations are arranged in one numeric sequence by codification number throughout the entire set. Elements in each number represent the department and its agencies and subdivisions responsible for each regulation.

An example of a COMAR regulation number is COMAR 07.02.25.01
07 Title – Department of Human Resources
02 Subtitle – Social Services Administration
25 Chapter – LDSS Resource Home Requirements
01 Regulation
These numbers are expanded when greater detail is required.

COMAR RESOURCES

The Maryland Register is the temporary supplement to the Code of Maryland Regulations, printing all changes in regulations as soon as they occur. This bi-weekly publication, which started in 1974, is also the official source of information about many other activities within State government. The Maryland Register is issued every other Friday.
