About Us 

The C.H.I.L.D. Organization, a national group, is all about helping Children Having Individual Learning Differences - which is the premise for C.H.I.L.D.   

The C.H.I.L.D. Organization - Scotch Plains Fanwood is a State Chapter.  We are a nonprofit organization, which dedicates itself to providing advocacy, help, resources and supports to children and their families where there is a learning difference, challenge or disability.  

Working in cooperation with Scotch Plains Fanwood School District and their Department of Special Education, C.H.I.L.D., formerly LDA of SPF, has provided input to the district concerning issues and policies concerning students with disabilities for over 32 years.

Our executive officers, provide rich and various backgrounds that continually benefit C.H.I.L.D. and the children and families they help.  Click for our officer listing.

All of what C.H.I.L.D. accomplishes is due greatly to the help of all our volunteers.  At times, more help is needed because there is only so much one group can do.  Those interested in helping should please contact us.

C.H.I.L.D. works in cooperation with, but is not limited to, School Districts and their Departments, Parent and Teacher Associations, Resolve and the Municipal Alliance Coalition (MAC).

The C.H.I.L.D. Organization plans out programs for parents, caregivers, teachers and professionals.   Approved by the Department of Education, workshops are designed to provide Professional Development Hours for Continuing Education Units (CEU's) for registered professionals and teachers. 

Other community and scholastic events have included The Recycling Fundraiser, Coffee and Tea with Mr. "B", Annual Student Programs for Transition, participation in Local Community Functions  and Student Tributes and Awards.  

If you have any questions or are interested in helping at any of these events, including serving on any C.H.I.L.D. Committees, please contact us.
