Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs (CYSHCN)

CYSCHN logo.colorThe WWCDCH Children & Youth with Special Health Care Needs (CHYSCHN) Program advocates for families and helps connect them to the resources and care they need, from birth through transition to adulthood. All families that have a child or youth with any type of special health care need are eligible for services. 

What it is
Local coordinators advocate for families and help connect them to insurance, early intervention, resources for unmet needs, disability related services, and therapies and specialty services.  

Who is it for?
Families who have children ages 0-18 years old that are at risk for or have a health/developmental condition. Services are free and provided regardless of income.

Where is it located?
Visit us at 310 Poplar Suite 121 Walla Walla WA 99362 (Push Developmental Disabilities button off to the side of the door)

There are situations where we may know about or have access to resources and supports that you are either not aware of or don’t have access to so if you have questions regarding your child’s care/needs and can’t find the answer please feel free to give me a call, text or e-mail.

Contact Krystal Ceron at (509) 524-2625 or email
