Military families must successfully plan for their PCS move while ensuring the continuity of support services for their family member(s) with special needs at their next location. Considerations will be different depending on whether the move is CONUS or OCONUS but focusing on key steps and finding resources such as relocation assistance, medical services, school information, transportation and more eases the transition.
