Extended Hours

November 19th, 2018

We know scheduling appointments for your child isn't always easy. Especially, if you are trying to limit the amount of time missed from work and school. That's why we're excited to announce that the Center for Developmental Pediatrics we will be offering extended hours for speech and occupational therapy. 

These changes are in direct response to parent feedback requesting late afternoon and early evening appointments to better accommodate family schedules. 

Extended hours will be available Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 7:30 am- 7:30 pm. Parents can call us at 423.490.7710 for more information and to schedule an OT or Speech therapy appointment for these new extended hours.

In addition, our new speech and language social skill groups will be available after hours on Mondays and Wednesdays.

Siskin Children’s Institute has issued the following Health Advisory:


Ensuring the safety of the children we serve and our staff is our primary concern. In a moment where our community and nation is preparing for a potential outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) the leadership of Siskin Children’s Institute has decided to close all of our programs, including the Siskin Center for Developmental Pediatrics, Early Learning Center, Home and Community-Based Early Intervention, Family Voices, and all Therapy Clinic Services including Occupational, Physical, Speech, and Applied Behavior Analysis.


Effective immediately Siskin Children's Institute will be closed to the public through Friday, April 24. 

Although closed to the public, there are critical aspects of our organization that will remain operational. We will be providing limited medical care, therapy services, ABA services, and home visiting services via tele-health.


Please be safe, follow safety protocols, wash your hands, and take care of your loved ones as we navigate through this challenging time.
