GROW with Shield HealthCare

14.6 million: That’s the number of U.S. children 0-17 years old who have special health care needs, including cerebral palsy, developmental delay and other conditions.

A child with special needs has a chronic physical, developmental, behavioral or emotional condition requiring health services beyond that of children generally.

Shield HealthCare is proud to introduce GROW with Shield HealthCare, a pediatric program that addresses the physical,  emotional and social needs of children with special needs and their families.
