Welcome to Clearbrook

It started as a dream for five families nearly 60 years ago. A chance for education. A way to connect with their peers. A path to self-sufficiency. A focus on ability – not disability. Today, Clearbrook provides services, programs and support for children and adults with autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy and other intellectual/developmental disabilities as well as their families. Five families paved the way. Since then, new milestones have been achieved everyday. What was thought impossible then is a part of everyday life for the 7,000 individuals and their families we serve each year.

Holiday Smiles

Help young children we serve as well as their sibling have a memorable holiday by purchasing a gift (wrapped or unwrapped) or a gift card and deliver to Clearbrook before December 10. For ideas for gifts or more information, please contact Leslie Golde at lgolde@clearbrook.org or 847-385-5325.


We have a day for giving thanks. We have Black Friday and Cyber Monday for deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose - to celebrate generosity and to give.

Donate to Clearbrook on Giving Tuesday
(Dec. 2) and all new donations will be matched by The Coleman Foundation.
