A medical special need is one that requires specialized care (e.g., urology, neurology, psychiatry, developmental pediatrics, etc.) for an ongoing, chronic illness.
An educational special need is one that requires special educational services in order to progress academically. These services are identified on an Individualized Education Plan or Individualized Family Service Plan and may include, but are not limited to: resource rooms, psychological services, occupational or physical therapy, or adaptive equipment.
The SNIAC process is specifically designed to:
The Air Force ensures personnel are assigned to locations where family members with special needs can receive services required. The Family Member Relocation Clearance screening process identifies special needs and determines the availability of services at projected locations. The SNIAC process does not affect TDY or mobility status.
Enrollment is mandatory for active duty military personnel who have a family member with a special need.
Medical Treatment Facilities (MTF) assess if required services are available, on or off base, at the gaining location prior to a permanent change of station. This ensures family members are able to receive the care they need prior to relocation.
Enrollment will continue as long as a special need exists.
