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.
