Opportunities for older children and adolescents with disabilities through the Supplemental Security Income Program



Opportunities for older children and adolescents with disabilities through the Supplemental Security Income Program



Children's Health Care 24(1): 21-32



The revitalization of the Supplemental Security Income Program for low-income children with disabilities has important implications for state Title V programs for children with special health care needs. Historically, this program has focused primarily on recipients under the age of 7. The files of children between the ages of 7 and 16 referred to Children's Special Health Services, North Carolina's Title V children with special health care needs program from July to August 1991 were analyzed to determine whether there was documentation that children in this age group were receiving recommended services. Reports in the files indicated that most (n = 214, 77%) of the children's needs for specific services were being met. The utility of information that currently exists on older children and adolescents eligible for SSI for assisting Title V children with special health care needs programs in coordinating care is discussed.
