Special Child Health Services (SCHS) assists in the provision of coordinated and comprehensive services for children ages birth- 21 years old with special health care needs or developmental disabilities.  Case Managers collaborate with families to develop a plan to address the child's medical, developmental, rehabilitative, educational, and economic needs.  SCHS Case Managers support families in obtaining needed services and resources through linkages with various community based programs.  Examples of services we frequently help parents connect with are Social Security, Medicaid, Early Intervention, Children’s System of Care ( PerformCare), the Division of Developmental Disabilities. Statewide Parent Advocacy Network (SPAN) and many others.  Case Managers work with parents to help get their child linked with services and then monitor how well the services are meeting the child’s needs.   Parents can call Case Managers when questions arise or if the child’s needs change as they grow.   Case Management services are free of charge and confidential for Mercer County residents.

 

The Special Child Health Services Case Management unit at Mercer Special Services School District is one of 21 county based Case Management units in NJ. SCHS is funded in part through the NJ Department of Health and Mercer County Department of Human Services in cooperation with Mercer County Special Services School District. Additional information and SCHS contacts in other counties be found at www.nj.gov/health/fhs/sch
