ABOUT US...                                                                              

The CHILD Organization is setup as a non-profit volunteer organization. CHILD provides support, guidance and information to parents, professionals and children with learning disabilities.

Our founding purpose is to achieve early detection, expand educational programs and improve medical care for children with learning differences. We accomplish this by educating ourselves and others in our community as to the nature of the child's needs, as well as the child's educational, physical, social and emotional requirements. 

Our local organization was originally formed in 1978 and consists of parents, lay people, professionals in medicine, education and the social sciences and other groups interested in the welfare of children.
