Improving Health Outcomes for Children with Disabilities
The Social Security Administration requested that the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine convene an ad hoc committee to produce a report on health outcomes for school-aged children with disabilities. The Committee on Improving Health Outcomes for Children with Disabilities will review and assess programs, services, and supports available to these children and their families; describe overarching program, service, and treatment goals; examine outreach efforts and utilization rates; identify what outcomes are measured and how they are reported; and describe what is known about the effectiveness of these programs and services. Based on currently available evidence, the committee will provide findings and conclusions that can inform future policy, practice, and research to improve the health outcomes for children who receive SSI benefits.
As of March 2016, the Health and Medicine Division continues the consensus studies and convening activities previously undertaken by the Institute of Medicine (IOM).
