The University of Illinois at Chicago’s Division of Specialized Care for Children (DSCC) has an important update about the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. 

We want you to be aware of some p​recautions we are taking to protect our program participants, their families/caregivers and our DSCC team.   

We are limiting visitors in our office until the guidance changes.  We feel this step is necessary to protect the participants of our program and our staff.

If you arrive at one of our offices, you will be asked to call to tell us more about how we can help you.  

We are also suspending home visits or other face-to-face visits until the current situation improves. 

DSCC Regional Offices plan to remain open.  If we have to close an office, we will still have staff available through our other DSCC locations who can help you get the care you need. 

Since the guidance on ways to slow the spread of coronavirus is evolving, please watch our website for continued updates.  

Our DSCC team remains committed to our mission to partner with Illinois families and communities to help children and youth with special healthcare needs connect to the services and resources they need.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we all do our part to help slow the spread of the coronavirus.  

Be well!
