What are existing support systems, services, or resources for parents and families of children with special needs?

Focus on those of local, state, and federal government.

Research privately run support systems and share those with the class.

If you were the parent of a special needs child, what would draw you to any of these and why?

I need some help with this question.

There are a great number of resources on the Internet that provide reliable examples of health assessments. One such site is that of Los Angeles county, California, a public site. Go to the link below and choose a health issue (i.e. Children with Special Health Care Needs). Review the data and evaluate it. Report your findings in a thorough, well-organized manner. What can you assume from this health assessment? What information contained in the report could help you in planning interventions in community health? What information could be used in public policy planning?
