Children with Special Health Care Needs
April Williams: Hello and welcome. Thank you for joining us today for our webinar Children with Special Health Care Needs. This webinar is sponsored by the Office of Head Start and National Center on Health. My name is April Williams and I'm the program coordinator for the National Center on Health.
Explore the key role caregivers play in supporting children with special health care needs. Through collaboration with families and the medical home, Head Start and other early childhood programs can ensure children are in safe environments that promote their health and learning. Learn best practices for creating an individual health care plan (IHP) and administering medication. Staff also will learn to communicate with the family, the medical home, and others who care for children with special health care needs in early childhood settings.
