Special Kids, Special Care believes that health and early education professionals caring for premature and medically fragile infants and young children should have access to educational opportunities to maintain and increase their skills and knowledge in the care they provide to families.  Special Kids, Special Care will identify and disseminate information as well as develop needed interdisciplinary educational programs that promote collaboration and coordination of care on behalf of families.
