ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION

For the past 80 years, Boyer Children's Clinic has been the premier provider of comprehensive services and support in greater Seattle for children birth to teen, serving nearly 1,500 children and their families annually. Boyer offers physical therapy; occupational therapy; speech-language pathology; feeding therapy; inclusive toddler groups (with parent participation and typically developing peers); social work services; medical evaluations (including autism spectrum diagnosis) by our on-staff medical director; and family resources coordination.
Each family begins their Boyer journey with an intake assessment by a nurse who conducts the initial evaluation. Based on the child’s individual needs, Boyer establishes an interdisciplinary team to maximize identification, consultation and coordination of all services. Our highly-specialized, evidence-based programs are designed to address the unique needs of each family. Our experienced professionals are leaders within the early intervention field and have expertise in serving the most medically-complex cases. Therapy and special education are offered in clinic (locations in Montlake or Magnuson Park), in home, or in a childcare settings. As we continue to face the COVID pandemic, all program areas have shifted to virtual visits to protect the health and well-being of our families and staff.
We are proud to offer Support Groups for all parents/caregivers, in addition to specific groups for fathers, mothers and couples. Individual support counseling is also available. We are also proud to offer a variety of specialized programs including Boyer CONNECT (for families experiencing homelessness, CHERISH (for children and caregivers involved the foster system) and the Developmental Bridge Program (for children up to age 48 months).
At Boyer Children’s Clinic, we celebrate each child’s unique abilities and embrace their individual needs. Through our high-quality therapy and education programs – strengthened by generous philanthropic donors and community volunteers – we partner with families to ensure they have the support, tools and confidence to help their children thrive, both now and in the future. We ensure all children in need of early intervention services receive equitable access to them, inclusive of cultural/linguistic diversity, and regardless of their family's financial circumstances.
