The Special Kids Network System of Care (SOC) addresses the barriers and challenges families experience when trying to get needed services for children and youth with special health care needs. Family Health Nursing Services Consultants, located in six district offices throughout the state, work with and within communities to identify those barriers and challenges and develop ways to address them. They help build and enhance coordinated services for children and youth with special health care needs, addressing issues such as transition from school to adult life, transportation of children with special needs and inclusion in communities.
