Some special needs populations are pregnant women, children with special needs health problems, people with physical or developmental disabilities, the elderly and people who are isolated geographically or physically.

The CDC specifies planning for limitations of mobility, sight and hearing; limitations on language comprehension; planning for limitations stemming from economic factors as many individuals and families live below the Federal poverty level thus cannot advance their own preparedness.
