Summary

The complexity of government programs sometimes makes it difficult for children with disabilities to get the benefits they need. This can impede their health and development. Meeting the Needs of Children with Disabilities suggests ways to improve the system. Its main focus is on the three largest programs: special education, Supplemental Security Income, and Medicaid.
