By: Dennis Z. Kuo, MD, MHS, FAAP & Cara Coleman, JD, MPH​

As COVID-19 continues to spread, children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN), may be at increased risk for complications. This includes children with chronic conditions, disabilities, and those with medically complex conditions. In addition, school and business closings may affect the availability of therapies and supports for these children. The impact is unknown but may be significant and long lasting.
