Transporting children with special health care needs (CSHCN) may be complex and require a multidisciplinary approach to improve a child's comfort and safety. This review (adapted from the resource manual of the National Center for the Safe Transportation of Children with Special Health Care Needs.) will discuss the basic principles of child passenger safety for CSHCN, including types of child occupant restraints, the use of child occupant restraint devices (CRD) for selected CHSCN, and how to locate or, if needed, develop programs to train child passenger safety technicians (CPST) to help with safe transportation of CSHCN.
