The Graham County Health Department would like to introduce you to the new website for parents, youth, caregivers, grandparents, teachers, administrators, counselors, healthcare professionals and everyone who comes in contact with “Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs”. This website is very comprehensive and contains resources for everyone to access. After reviewing the site, there is a questionnaire at the bottom that you can make comments on. We will leave this questionnaire up for a few weeks. Please feel free to comment.
The Arizona Department of Health Services uses the Maternal and Child Health Bureau’s definition of Children with Special Health Care Needs as:
“Children up to age 21, who have or are at risk for a chronic physical, developmental, behavioral, emotional or potentially disabling condition and who also require health and related services of a type or amount beyond that required by children generally.”
Please access the website with the link below or through the Graham County Website.
This website was created and made available from funding provided by State of Arizona Department of Health Services, Healthy People, Healthy Communities, Health in Arizona Policy Initiative.
