Snowball technique was used by the Barangay Health Worker (BHW) in gathering the unidentified or unregistered in the PDAO list but considered as children with special needs. The research questionnaires were distributed among the barangay health workers and family care members who underwent training given by the Dean of DLSHSI-CRS on how to properly use the questionnaire. Frequency distribution was used to tabulate the questions answered from the survey particularly the demographic profile, socio-economic profile, educational and services profile, rehabilitative services profile and domain functional affectation of CSN. The age and gender of each child was listed in numerical order from youngest to oldest according to human growth and development range to determine the frequency from their respective Barangay. The study concludes that most of the children with special needs in the 2nd and 3rd districts of Cavite research locale set D were males, not studying and belong to low income and class E economic status. Most of them were receiving highly satisfactory psychosocial support (educational, medical/health, social well-being, attention and caregiving).
