We can help.

Children & Youth with Special Health Care Needs is a free program that connects young people and their families to resources and services.

If your child is age 17 or younger and has, or is at risk of having, a condition which may prevent them from growing, developing, or playing like other children, your family is eligible for these services regardless of income.

Some conditions that children with special health care needs might have include:

  • asthma

  • autism

  • cancer

  • cerebral palsy

  • Down syndrome

  • cleft lip and/or palate

  • cystic fibrosis

  • attention deficit hyperactivity disorder

  • prematurity

  • speech/language delay

  • sickle cell anemia

  • diabetes

  • juvenile arthritis

  • epilepsy

  • blindess

  • hearing loss

  • gross and/or fine motor delay


The program can help families:

  • find programs that might assist your child with special needs.

  • find financial assistance that you may be eligible for.

  • schedule appointments and transportation.

  • access needed services for your child, such as medical care and other interventions.

  • find information about health insurance programs, both private insurance and the state-funded Medicaid program.

Families can refer themselves to the program; or, referrals can be made by schools or medical and service providers.
