If your child has been severely injured, or diagnosed with an illness affecting their development, it can be hard to know what to do, where to get support, or what services and resources are available to help you or your child.
You are not alone. Nine million American children under 18, about 13 percent, have a special healthcare need.
Children with special needs are more like other children than unlike them. All children need to be cared for, loved and supported.
A Starter Kit for Children with Special Needs is a comprehensive publication designed to help guide you through the complicated maze of agencies, forms, guidelines and terminologies.
