Hear From Our Amazing Team

Working at The Children's Institute has always been a dream job of mine. My brother was actually a student here. I think being part of a family that has someone with special needs can be very isolating at times and just seeing the way that this place provided an opportunity for my parents to learn what was best for him and to see such positive change in him in this journey was so inspiring to me; and I knew that I wanted to work here; and I wanted to do the same thing every single day for my students and for their families.

I love the culture of innovation here. In my 8+ years with The Children's Institute, I have always been encouraged to pursue my professional interests and hone my skills. It's rewarding to grow as a clinician - and to to encourage growth in special kids - by having fun with a purpose every day.

Our families face big challenges and each team member at The Children's Institute is committed to supporting them at every turn. It's breathtaking to see our team in action, working together to transform the lives of children and families in imaginative and resourceful ways.
