Multiple state agencies and organizations are working to identify and support children with special physical, emotional and developmental disabilities. Coordination and collaboration across systems, including the sharing of data, increases the ability for states to identify children at risk and ensure they are receiving the appropriate health, mental health and developmental services. This webinar features three states discussing collaborations across state programs that impact the identification and treatment of children in need of specific services.
