The Children and Youth with Special Healthcare Needs (CYSHCN) Program is for children birth to age 21 who have or are suspected of having a serious or chronic health condition that may require services beyond what is typically required. No diagnosis is required to access this program. CYSHCN staff can help with referrals and resources for services such as, but limited to: case management, medical provider, transportation, securing medical insurance, support groups, therapy providers, Early Intervention (EI) and Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE) referrals, transition to adult services, and more.
