ATTENTION PARENTS and TEACHERS: If your child or student . . .
• struggles with school work or homework; or
• receives support in a resource room; or
• receives services such as speech & language therapy or occupational therapy; or
• is in a self-contained, parallel, co-taught or skills class; or
• receives modifications or accommodations based upon his or her special needs

then C.H.I.L.D., a committee of Scarsdale’s PT council, is a network of resources, information and support for you. We have a diverse group of dedicated volunteers who are available to answer your questions and offer support and advice.  Your calls will be kept confidential.


We invite you to attend our meetings!
In addition to providing support, our meetings also enable us to discuss ways we can ensure that the school system meets our children’s special needs. Our meetings feature speakers from the Scarsdale School District as well as noted professionals in the fields of learning disabilities, psychology, and medicine.
