Our Mission:

The mission of Special Child Health Services (SCHS) is to enhance the capacity of families to meet the developmental and health related needs of children from birth to age 21 who have delays or disabilities by providing education and support services.

Families from diverse racial, cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds are key partners in the process of decision making at every level of the design, implementation and evaluation of their child’s care. This partnership is foundational and paramount to the successful workings of Special Child Health Services.

Service Coordination for early Intervention: Age Birth to Three

Early intervention services are designed to address a problem or delay in development as early as possible. The services are available for infants and toddlers up to age three. Public and private agencies serve as providers to address the needs of children and their families who meet the eligibility criteria established by the State.

Call 1-888-653-4463 for eligibility determination.

The Case Management Team: Age birth to Twenty-One

Case management is a goal directed system, the purpose of which is to assure the provision of coordinated comprehensive services for special needs children and their families. The ultimate goal of the case management unit is to assist these families with identifying and accessing quality health care so that children have the opportunity to function at their optimum level.

About jwatrel

I am a free-lance writer and Blogger. I am the author of the book "Firehouse 101" (IUniverse.com 2005) part of trilogy of books centered in New York City. My next book "Love Triangles" is finished being edited and should be ready for release in the Fall. My latest book, "Dinner at Midnight", a thriller is on its last chapter. My long awaited book explains the loss of the 2004 Yankee game to Boston. I work as a Consultant, Adjunct College Professor, Volunteer Fireman and Ambulance member and Blogger. I have a blog site for caregivers called 'bergencountycaregiver', a step by step survival guide to all you wonderful folks taking care of your loved ones, a walking project to walk every block, both sides, of the island of Manhattan "MywalkinManhattan" and discuss what I see and find on the streets of New York and three sites to accompany it. One is an arts site called "Visiting a Museum", where I showcase small museums, historical sites and parks that are off the beaten track both in Manhattan and outside the city to cross reference with "MywalkinManhattan" blog site. Another is "DiningonaShoeStringNYC", featuring small restaurants I have found on my travels in this project, that offer wonderful meals for $10.00 and under. So be on the lookout for updates on all three sites and enjoy 'MywalkinManhattan'. The third is my latest site, "LittleShoponMainStreet", which showcases all the unique and independent shops that I have found on my travels throughout and around Manhattan. I have started two new blog sites for the fire department, one "EngineOneHasbrouck HeightsFireDepartmentnj" for the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department to discuss what our Engine Company is doing and the other is "BergenCountyFireman'sHomeAssociation" for the Bergen County Fireman's Association, which fire fighters from Bergen County, NJ, go to the Fireman's Home in Boonton, NJ to bring entertainment and cheer to our fellow brother fire fighters quarterly.
