Summer Learning Opportunities

April 29th, 2019

Looking for summer learning opportunities, Siskin Children’s Institute has just what you need. Throughout the summer, staff from various programs will be offering workshops that will help families continue to learn and support their children. Workshops will focus on topic such as developing visual supports, using your voice and your story to advocate for your child, using augmentative and alternative communication devices at home, handwriting skills, improving mealtime routines and so much more! 

Siskin Children’s Institute works to provide information and resources for families and our summer workshop offerings aim to do just that. 

These workshops are open to anyone in our community. Some even offer multiple dates and times to best fit into your summer plans. A current schedule is available at siskin.org/workshops. 

Want to help your child strengthen their social skills over the summer break?  Siskin Children’s Institute offers social skills groups for children from 6-12 years old. Learn more.

Important Reintegration Information

All programs and services are currently open and ready to serve.


The Early Learning Center reopened for business on Monday, June 15, 2020.
Temporary business hours for the ELC are from 8:00a to 5:00p.

The Early Learning Center has enhanced safety and health measures to help mitigate the potential risk of COVID-19. These enhanced safety measures were developed based on the guidance provided by the CDC as well as other guidelines issued at the state and local levels. All parents and families will receive packets with detailed information regarding our COVID-19 safety measures to protect their children and our staff.

Developmental Pediatrics and Therapy Services in both our Chattanooga and Nashville locations are now allowing limited in-person services by appointment only. Walk-ins are currently not available and access to our clinics is only allowed if you have passed our comprehensive screening process, detailed in patient appointment communications. If you have questions or need to schedule an appointment please call. 

Telehealth Services Available – We continue to provide medical and therapy services, including applied behavior analysis and home and community-based early intervention therapy, via tele-health during this time.

Institute Leadership
, with the guidance of our medical and therapy teams, has implemented precautionary/sanitation protocols, staff training, and patient traffic flow measures to protect our patients, students, families, and staff. This is a multi-phased approach to mitigate risks associated with COVID-19. Phase one of this plan has already been executed and all patients, students, families, and staff have been notified or trained. We will announce enhancements to our reintegration plan over the next weeks and months based on the guidance provided by local and state health departments and the CDC.
