- To examine the relationship between ease of access to needed community-based services (ease of access) and educational services receipt, and variation in educational services receipt by sociodemographic and need factors among a nationally representative sample of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), developmental delay (DD), and/or intellectual disability (ID).
- To assess how the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) affects outcomes for children with special health care needs (CSHCN).
- To report on coverage and adequacy of health insurance for children with special health care needs (CSHCN) in 2009–2010 and assess changes since 2001.
- We use the latest data to explore multiple dimensions of financial burden among children with special health care needs (CSHCN) and their families in 2009–2010 and changes since 2001.
- The aims of this study were to profile and compare the health and health services characteristics for children with special health care needs (CSHCN), with and without disabilities, and to determine factors associated with unmet need.
- Family-provider partnerships and satisfaction with services together are one of the Health Resources and Services Administration's (HRSA) Maternal and Child Health Bureau's (MCHB) 6 core outcomes for children with special health care needs (CSHCN) and are tracked using the 2005–2006 National Survey of Children with Special Health Care Needs. Our objectives were to examine demographic, health, and other correlates/associations, with the perception of family-provider partnership and satisfaction with care; determine the associations between these perceptions and other child/family outcomes; and evaluate differences in the perception of partnership and satisfaction between the families of CSHCN and other children.
