Special Children, Special Care

There are more than 190,000 children in the Commonwealth of Virginia who have special healthcare needs – physical disorders that are expected to last for at least 12 months. These children need treatment beyond that normally expected for their age. Some may have limited ability to function socially, athletically or academically when compared with healthy peers. There are approximately 47,300 children with special healthcare needs in the Northern Virginia region spanning from Loudoun County to Fredericksburg.
