Siskin Children's Institute exists to support children with special needs and their families through early education, specialized pediatric health care, and early intervention.

1 in 6 children are diagnosed with a developmental disability. That means that there is a high demand for organizations like Siskin Children’s Institute (SCI), but few that families can turn to for early intervention programs, diagnosis, and treatment.

Below you can join the 1 in 6 campaign to support children with special needs. Your donatin directly impacts children like these and more than 2600 others in our community.
