Seattle Children's Center for Children with Special Needs' mission is to improve and promote the health and well being of children with special health care needs and their families. We focus on providing information and resources to families and health care professionals. Our work includes modeling and evaluation of projects that impact policy, quality of care, education and family partnerships in health care.
Program Description
The Center for Children with Special Needs was formed in Seattle, WA in 1998 as a program of Seattle Children's. We collaborate with a variety of health care organizations, state agencies, families, and health care providers to plan and implement grants and contracts that improve care and increase access to health education materials and community resources.

The Center provides information to families, teens with ongoing health conditions, and health care professionals to help:
  • Find information on diagnoses,
  • Organize medical information with a Care Notebook,
  • Create a plan of care,
  • Find support through others with similar experiences,
  • Look up community-based resources from our site,
  • Information on getting started after a new diagnosis
We are a program of Seattle Children's and primarily serve families in the Pacific Northwest (Washington, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho). However, most of the information on this site is meant to be helpful, no matter where you live.
We are funded through government contracts and grants, private foundation grants, endowments and Seattle Children's. The Washington State Department of Health supports the development and maintenance of this website.
