  Children with Special Health Care Needs
  The Children with Special Health Care Needs program is part of the federal Maternal and Child Health Block Grant. It provides medical services to special needs children who are not eligible for Medicaid. These services may include food supplements, genetics testing and counseling and grants to local programs serving community health needs.

Residential Services for Persons with Developmental Disabilities
  DHS operates two residential facilities, the Southern Oklahoma Resource Center in Pauls Valley and the Northern Oklahoma Resource Center in Enid, for persons with developmental disabilities who require full-time residential services.

  Families eligible for SoonerStart have infants and toddlers through 36 months of age who have developmental delays or have a physical or mental condition such as Down's Syndrome or cerebral palsy which will most likely cause a developmental delay. SoonerStart offers diagnostic and evaluation services; case management; family training; nursing and nutrition services; occupation, physical and speech-language therapy, and special instruction services.

Supported Employment for Persons with Developmental Disabilities
  The Supported Employment Program assists persons with developmental disabilities to gain employment and increased independence by providing job coaches and support services on the job.
