New L.A. SBHC for Special Needs Kids

South Los Angeles children with autism will soon have a school-based health center in their community to meet their special developmental needs. The Los Angeles County Education Foundation‘s $250,000 Stay Well Learn Well® School Health Center grant to Special Needs Network, Inc. (SNN) will support child developmental assessment programs at a $2.2 million Autism Medical and Developmental Clinic on the campus of Martin Luther King, Jr. Hospital in Willowbrook.

SNN has teamed with St. John’s Well Child and Family Center. The clinic will become the medical home for 500 children with learning, behavioral, emotional, developmental and mental health issues.
