We are a regional specialty school for children with emotional, social and behavioral challenges. Using an empathy-based approach with your child we repair trust, boost self-esteem and practice skills. We help your child grow beyond the struggles that block their readiness for learning and connecting with their world. We meet each child where they are, so we can effectively customize learning and supports for the greatest possible success. In addition to academics and integrated therapeutic supports, CHILD School specializes in teaching self-regulation, social emotional learning skills and coping tools to children with special needs. Since 1977, we have successfully educated children with a range of conditions that interfere with learning including: Behavioral difficulties Inability to self-regulate Anxiety Impulsivity Disorganization Communication deficits Inflexible thinking Sensory Processing Disorders Small class size and very high teacher to student ratio ensures focused instruction. Classroom lessons and integrated mental health supports are customized based on your child’s strengths and challenges. We offer a full-time day program with year-round, open enrollment and a six week summer program, subject to availability. We serve students placed by parents or in partnership with school districts. CHILD is an Approved Non Public Agency by Washington State and Accredited by AdvancED We think our students are a different kind of gifted and we nurture those precious gifts every day.
