1 in 6 children is 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.

Be the 1 in 6! Make a difference in the lives of children with special needs today by being the 1 in 6 Chattanooga area residents who donate $20 or more to help children with special needs.

Help us reach our goal by December 31, 2018.
