Since its opening, over 30 years ago, the Clinic has served countless families, children and teachers-in-training; they depend on the Clinic.

UIC CARES (formerly the UIC Educational Assessment Clinic) is committed to educational equity. Our educational, behavioral, and social-emotional services yield targeted results for individuals with disabilities and their families. UIC CARES also supports the next generation of special education teachers and service providers to understand and address the needs of diverse learners and their families.

Your support allows us to provide free or low cost services to children and families in need.

Please give generously to support our efforts and build our future.

Read about the impact of the Clinic experience:


"In kindergarten, our son was not learning at the rate of other students in his grade. He was not making progress and the school suggested we hold him back a grade. I saw the flyer about UIC’s Educational Assessment Clinic and it was a shining light in a gloomy situation. After our son was assessed we felt a sense of relief. We were empowered to take the assessment results to his school and advocate for him." - Parent (Child Age 6)


"The UIC Educational Assessment Clinic made the assessment experience fun for our son. The staff was very receptive and helped us better understand his needs and strengths. We all learned a lot from the experience." - Parent (Child Age 13)
