The Commission for Children with Special Health Care Needs (CCSHCN)

CCSHCN clinics provide a family centered multidisciplinary approach to care. During each visit, children and families have access to nutritional services, social services, care coordination through a registered nurse, and specialty physicians. Physical and occupational therapies are included for clinics serving children with orthopedic conditions and cerebral palsy. Speech therapy is available for children with hearing loss or other conditions that affect speech and language development. Clinics that treat complex conditions offer the services of multiple physicians who provide a team approach to the management of these complex conditions.
