A special child is any infant, child, or young adult who has or may have a disease, defect, or medical condition that may interfere with normal growth and development.

The Special Child Health Program coordinates and monitors the services needed by any physically and/or cognitively impaired or child with a potential disability from birth to age 22.

Families are informed and referred to programs and services that are available based on their needs.

The Office Provides

  • Case management services to children, birth to 22, with chronic illnesses and developmental delays.
  • Linkage and referrals to services that benefit their child, including government and community resources.
  • Assistance for families to access appropriate educational settings and the related services that may be needed.
Case management is a resource offered at no cost for families.
