Children with Unique Concerns

We love our kids with special needs and make every effort to include them in CYS activities and programs.

To do that, every installation convenes a Multi-Disciplinary Inclusion Action Team (MIAT), which explores child care and youth supervision options for children and youth with special needs, including Asthma, ADD/ADHD, Diabetes, Autism, Epilepsy, Down Syndrome, Seizure Disorders, Physical Challenges, Learning Disabilities, Speech Therapy, Food Allergies, etc. 

In order to assist the team, parents/guardians may be asked to bring specific information, such as:

  • IEP (Individualized Education Plans)
  • Assessments/Evaluations
  • Medical Documentation
  • Prescriptions

The MIAT takes approximately 30-45 minutes to complete and is held once a year unless there are changes to the child's educational, learning, developmental, medical, nutritional or behavioral concern, disorder, impediment, delay or needs. During the MIAT, the team determines reasonable accommodations and availability of services to support a child/youth's special needs.

The MIAT includes parent(s), CYS Coordinator, Outreach Services Director, Army Public Health Nurse (APHN), and Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) manager.
