Children with Special Health Needs

The Children with Special Health Care Needs program provides support by a trained public health nurse for families with children who have special health care needs.

The program can help families with:

  • Information on childhood issues like eating and nutrition, growth and development, and behavior.
  • Information about your child’s medical condition.
  • Identifying programs that might assist your child.
  • Locating and securing financial assistance that you may be eligible for.
  • Scheduling appointments and arranging transportation.

The program offers assistance to children who are:

  • Under 18 years of age, and
  • Have a condition which may prevent them from growing, developing or playing like other children, or
  • Have a condition that places them at risk for being disabled.
