Special Needs Care Plan

ECELS-Healthy Child Care PA has prepared a Care Plan form to gather key information to provide care for children with special health needs.The majority of early care and education programs enroll children with special health needs. The most common chronic medical conditions among children are allergy and asthma. Teachers/caregivers need to know the specific details about each enrolled child with a medical or other special condition. The form collects the essential information. It includes how to care for a child's daily needs and to handle an emergency. Early care and education staff should arrange for parents and health professionals to complete the form when the child is first considered for enrollment and anytime a new medical condition develops.
