Children's Hospital Primary Care Center (CHPCC) | Advocating Success for Kids

The Advocating Success for Kids Program at Boston Children's Hospital works with children under age 14 who are having learning, developmental, emotional, or behavioral problems at school or at home.

Our multidisciplinary team offers evaluation of developmental, learning, and/or behavioral difficulties, referral for services, and advocacy. We serve the Children's Hospital Primary Care Center and Martha Eliot Health Center.

The ASK Program at Boston Children's Hospital was created in 2000 to provide children with specialty care services. Children seen in the ASK Program typically have diagnoses of autism, learning disabilities, ADHD, language delays, and intellectual disabilities. We work to improve their overall health, their ability to function in school, and their chance for a brighter future.

Our team assesses and screens children referred to us by their primary care providers for developmental issues. We meet parents and their child, discuss the child's problems, come up with a treatment and follow-up plan, and refer them to any additional resources.

ASK serves over 500 children in the Boston area each year. Our multidisciplinary team of experts in developmental medicine, neurodevelopmental disabilities, social work, education, and psychology work together to:

  • develop an understanding of your child and propose interventions that reduce barriers to success coordinate plans that involve your child's clinic, school, family, and community resources help educate parents about child development and negotiating school systems, while empowering families to become better advocates
  • disseminate specialty knowledge to schools to better serve children with unique learning, emotional, or developmental needs

We would like to thank the following funding contributors for their continued support and partnership with the ASK Program:

  • Digital Federal Credit Union
  • Community Care Alliance
  • Office of Child Advocacy at Boston Children's Hospital
  • Boston Children's Hospital Primary Care Center
