Framework for identifying children who have chronic conditions : the case for a new definition.
Efforts to identify children with ongoing health conditions generally rely on lists of diagnoses.
However, there has been a growing trend to use a noncategorical, or generic, approach in which such children are identified by the consequences of their condition.
Recent legislation and the Supreme Court decision in Sullivan v Zebley adopt this broader concept and mandate that a noncategorical approach be used in determining eligibility for services and benefits.
