Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs

Our Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs (CYSHCN) program covers children from birth through age 21 who have conditions that may cause them to need extra support services or specialized health care. Children in the program may have physical conditions, behavioral or emotional conditions, or intellectual or developmental delays. They may have one or more conditions such as autism, cerebral palsy, and seizure disorders.

Schuyler County Public Health provides families in the community with information and referrals to the services or care their child needs, such as:

  • Help navigating special education services
  • Advocacy
  • Help with health insurance
  • Help with finding items and services that aren't covered by health insurance

Our program is provided at no cost to the family.
