Surrounded by mountains with a river running through the heart of its downtown, Chattanooga is a nationally renowned destination in the Southeastern United States with recreation for people of all skill levels and hundreds of miles of trails, world-class events, thousands of acres of conservation and national recognition.  The city is also noted for the renaissance of its beautiful downtown and redevelopment of its riverfront.  With its scenic beauty, stable population, growing economy, and cooperative, friendly people, it is truly one of the most progressive mid-size cities in the United States.

Within a two-hour drive of Atlanta, Nashville, Birmingham and Knoxville, Chattanooga uniquely offers a quality of life that is hard to duplicate anywhere in the country.  And it provides an opportunity to join an established program committed to serving the needs of children in cooperation with a growing, world-class children’s hospital.

The Siskin Children’s Institute includes the following:

The Siskin Early Learning Center provides a high-quality preschool education to young children with and without disabilities, including children with developmental delays, autism spectrum disorder, chromosomal abnormality and brain injury. All children learn and play side by side in an environment that celebrates the accomplishments of every child.

The Siskin Center for Developmental Pediatrics is a regional developmental pediatric center led by a board-certified developmental-behavioral pediatrician. Children are referred to the center for medical, psychological and cognitive assessment, diagnosis and treatment, including physical, occupational, speech and language, and other therapies as well as counseling and social skills groups.

The Siskin Home & Community-Based Early Intervention program is designed to help parents, other caregivers and children with special needs gain the knowledge and confidence they need to be successful in life. Through visits with a developmental therapist, families receive information, support, guidance and consultation about improving quality of life both for children and their families. The program can be provided in the home, child care center, the park or other natural settings in the community.

Siskin Outreach Services provide disability information to families, college students and professionals through a dynamic array of programs that weave through the Institute’s other areas of focus. Outreach Services offer a lending library, family support, consultation services, and professional training in fields related to special needs and early development.

In addition to the four-season climate and affordable housing, there is no state income tax on salaries, wages, bonuses or any other type of income for work.  Chattanooga is also home to several well-known private and parochial schools, including Baylor School, McCallie School and Girls Preparatory School.  With a world-class aquarium ranked No. 4 in the country and No. 8 in the world, a variety of urban and outdoor activities, and 57 trail heads within a half-hour drive, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by this gem of a town, if you aren’t already a fan.
