Welcome to Clearbrook

It started as a dream for five families 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.

Document Destruction

Shredding important documents is the best way to protect yourself from becoming a victim of identity theft. Clearbrook offers convenient drop-off hours at its Palatine location where your personal documents will be destroyed in a secure, locked environment.  Best of all you are helping to provide employment and beneficial job skills training for people with disabilities.
