Children With Special Needs

The Children with Special Needs Division provides a variety of services to families of children with physical, emotional, or developmental needs. Services can range from direct therapy provided to a toddler with developmental delays to referral of an adolescent to a specialty physician or program. We collaborate with various community agencies and organizations to assist local families in obtaining needed care and support for their children with special needs.
