The Clinic for Special Children is a healthcare home for both primary care and complex needs children. Founded by Dr. Karen Harum, the Clinic offers pediatric care to any child, regardless of their neuro or physical abilities. With specialized neurodevelopmental training, the Clinic's providers offer an unprecedented level of care and consideration from birth through adolescence, until a child reaches adulthood.
Frequently Asked Questions about the Clinic:
1. My child is not special needs - do you offer primary pediatric care?
The Clinic offers care to ALL children of ALL abilities! With providers who have specialized training, our Clinic is uniquely able to assess, diagnose, and treat children in early stages for specialized care. The Clinic always considers a whole child, including environmental and overall wellness, when considering care and treatments.
2. Is there a waitlist to become a new patient?
No! We are currently accepting new patients.
3. Will I be able to choose which provider that I see?
Not generally. New primary care patients will generally begin their healthcare and wellness journey with our Nurse Practitioner. Our neurodevelopmental MDs (Karen Harum and Robert Nutt) offer care for our more complex and special needs patients, in addition to neuro-typical children. Your child may see Dr. Harum or Dr. Nutt, regardless of abilities, depending on scheduling and availability.
4. What are your payment and insurance options?
The Clinic now offers more ways to join our healthcare family than ever before! We accept Medicaid Direct and the Medicaid PHP AmeriHealth. We also offer a schedule of fees for direct cash pay, and a superbill should you choose to personally submit the claim to your own insurance (we do not offer assistance with this.) We are NOW offering a Direct Membership Model for families who choose the Clinic for its healthcare and wellness community. The Membership provides an affordable access to care with monthly membership fees instead of one super bill.
