Children remain in the ABCD Program until their 6th birthday.

Resources Directory for Children with Chronic Conditions

Sponsored by the Seattle Children's Hospital

Resources Directory Available for Northwest Residents
Families who have children with chronic conditions often need to find resources to assist them in caring for their child’s needs. You may need help finding transportation to a medical visit or accessing therapy services near your home. You may want to find parent organizations or information about child care or insurance coverage.

The resource search option lets you look for resources by topic. Most resources are in Washington, Alaska, Montana or Idaho but there are a few national resources available for other states. As you contact resources, make sure you are comfortable, know what you need, and find out about costs, their ability to work with you, within your budget or with your insurance plan.
