Information on Medical Issues from the Parent Perspective

Welcome to Complex Child, your source for information on children who are medically complex or have disabilities!

Complex Child is a monthly online magazine written by parents of children with special healthcare needs and disabilities. It is intended to provide medical information, along with personal experiences, in simple language that other parents can understand.

We are in the process of loading in our archives from the old site. Currently, articles from 2011 through 2017 are on the new site, with links to older articles on the old site. Thank you for your patience during this transition!

Around her waist, she carries both her epinephrine auto injectors in a bright-pink SpiBelt around her waist so they are close in case of a life-threatening reaction.
