Smiling girl laying in hospital bedThe diagnoses listed below are chronic conditions in children. The Center does not offer specific diagnosis information, but we would like to help you connect with places to find accurate information.

While the list does not include all childhood chronic diagnoses, it is a starting place to find reliable websites that contain information about the condition, care or safety.   If you are a teen, check out our Understand Your Own Health Condition for tips on how to do research online.  It may also help you to find out general information on how the body works.

For information about resources for children with special needs and their families, visit Getting Started After a New Diagnosis, and download the Starting Point Guide (Washington State information).
