Introducing…the CARE Clinic

The Haring Center, under the direction of Dr. Ilene Schwartz, is proud to announce expansion of professional training and community service with yet another innovative and unique unit.

Last September, the CARE Clinic opened doors to provide diagnostic and therapeutic services for individuals and families living with neuro-developmental disabilities. Utilizing pre- and post-doctoral interns, the CARE Clinic is meeting a health and educational need in the community not elsewhere addressed; increasing service capacity for tomorrow through professional training while keeping services accessible to all.

Dr. Julie Osterling returns to the University of Washington as clinical director of the CARE Clinic, bringing her national reputation and dedication to community and professional education. "All the stars were aligned," says Julie. "‘ASTAR was closing and there was no one in the community to continue or take over services for the families we were seeing, or continue the training program. Ilene knew and trusted our model and today our biggest struggle is finding time to fit in all our clients and students!’" 

The larger umbrella of the College of Education makes sense. For children and adults living with neuro-'diversity', education is the therapeutic prescription for success. Success in school, at home, in the workplace and society. For pre- and post-doctoral interns, CARE Clinic provides hands-on, in-depth clinical experience with opportunities to work with young and old, individuals and families and couples.
