A-Z Directory of Medical Conditions

Finding out if your child has a medical condition and special needs raises many questions for parents and unfortunately for many of us we do not know all the questions to ask or how to succinctly ask these in the limited time we have with our specialists. Thus, we have provided links to medical databases to give you more info on your child’s condition. We suggest you use this as a guide and consult your child’s specialists for advice and answers specific to your child.

Click on the letter that your child’s medical condition begins with and you will be hyperlinked to medical databases.
If your child’s condition is not listed follow the hyperlink as it is likely to be on the medical database and contact us at info@specialaussies.com with add (condition name) to A-z medical in the subject line and we will add this to conditions listed.

To find resources and support agencies to support you and your child, please follow the link to our Directory of Services A-Z, which includes associations, support groups, financial assistance, carers and more.
