Our Mission

The C.H.I.L.D. Organization is a foundation of supports and resources to 

families that have children with special needs and learning differences.  

Our objectives are to strengthen and advocate for the rights of those 

with challenges and differences through education and awareness with the 

goal of having all children celebrate success.


Commitment to Education & Community

What We've Done  

The CHILD Organization  planned and hosted one of the most successful Special Educational Conferences in NJ to date - Conference 2005!  Working with Resolve, we brought to fruition a new program, The High School Transition Program for 8th Graders, while providing for increased student participation in our existing Transition to Middle School Program for 4th Graders.  Equally successful and delightful for the students is our end of the year Recognition Night that is always a favorite treat for all!  With over 400 attendees, children and their families enjoy live entertainment, activities while feasting on dozens on entrees and treats!  

Many thanks to the following restaurants, organizations and businesses in Scotch Plains and surrounding areas for all their support:

More For You

Our special guests have been but are not limited to Doctors, Specialists, Clinicians, Learning Consultants, Attorney's and other Professionals that work with children or provide services to them or their families.  Our workshops are also designed to provide Professional Development Hours that can be applied towards Continuing Education Units for member professionals and teachers.  There is no cost to attend our programs  and all are welcome.
