Our Graham County residents are very important to us. Families who have members with disabilities or other special health care needs can face many daily challenges. Living in a rural area can make those challenges even more difficult.
Good health promotes growth and participation in education, social interaction, recreation and community life, as well as employment, volunteerism and post-secondary education.
Our goal is to improve the long-term health and well-being of children and youth with special health care needs. We hope to make things just a little bit easier with all of the resources we have provided.
Conditions or Disabilities
Children with special health care needs means children with ongoing conditions or disabilities, who need or use health care, therapies, behavioral health, counseling, special education or other services, that most children don't use. Some examples of conditions include:
Attention Deficit Disorder
Fragile X Syndrome
Hearing or Vision Impairment
And many more
These and any other ongoing conditions or disabilities are a special health care need.
