CYACC - Health Services - Eskenazi Health

Located on the fourth floor of the Sandra Eskenazi Outpatient Care Center, the Center for Youth & Adults with Conditions of Childhood (CYACC) is designed to steer young people with special health care needs toward a successful adult life. CYACC provides consultation and coordination of care for two key populations:

  • Youths between the ages of 11 and 22 with special needs (chronic conditions, developmental delay, physical disabilities) as they prepare to transition to adult life
  • Adults with specific needs due to childhood illnesses or developmental disabilities

The five most common diagnoses for CYACC patients are Down syndrome, spina bifida, cerebral palsy, autism and intellectual disabilities. Referrals to CYACC can come from a variety of sources, including youths or their families, primary care providers, subspecialists or community agencies.

CYACC’s interdisciplinary care team is composed of physicians, nurses, social workers and other professionals, many of whom have personal experience as a parent of a person with special health care needs. The care team provides clinical visits four half-days per week and care coordination during the remainder of the week, working with patients to create a portable medical summary and transition plan based on discussions of key areas of concern regarding the transition to adulthood, including transportation, health care financing, education and employment, and living arrangements.

The care coordinator also helps to schedule follow-up appointments, which usually take place once per year.
