The University of Illinois at Chicago’s Division of Specialized Care for Children (DSCC) is a statewide program that serves children and youth with special healthcare needs and their families. DSCC staff help families find the specialty care and resources they need for their child to reach their full potential. We draw on the relationships and expertise our staff has built since 1937 to address a child’s medical, social, behavioral, educational and financial needs. We do this through a process called care coordination, which aims to meet the needs of the child and family as a whole. This support helps families feel more confident and organized in their child’s care and become well-prepared for the transition to adulthood.

Our care coordination is free for all children who have eligible medical conditions, regardless of their family’s income level. This presentation will discuss DSCC’s eligibility requirements and examples of how our care coordination can benefit families.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
