In 2020-2021, the foundation supported a questionnaire that was fielded three times over a nine-month period to assess the impact of COVID-19 on the experiences of families of children with special health care needs. As the COVID-19 pandemic enters its third year, with emerging consensus that the disease is transitioning to an endemic state, California families face new challenges and new needs. Building on the previous study,, a program of PRB, will field a fourth questionnaire to families in California to inform the need for timely, actionable evidence that policymakers, advocates, and program and agency staff can use to shape the programs, services, and workforce supporting California families as they adapt to significant, and now long-term, life changes.
