Monday, October 29, 2012: 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM
Supported by the US Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB), the National Survey of Children’s Health and the National Survey of Children with Special Health Care Needs are two population-based household surveys providing a wealth of data about child health and well-being at the state and national levels. Extracting data on children with disabilities from these surveys, the presenters of this session will provide snap shots of health issues children with disabilities and the families supporting them are currently facing.
Session Objectives: Explain at least one critical health issue related to health of children with disabilities.
