About Us

For over 57 years, AchieveKids has offered a place where acceptance is the key to being welcomed into the community. We acknowledge it is not always easy, but we know that today's difficulties are tomorrow's opportunities for success. This philosophy allows students to slowly build their self-esteem and learn to take chances. Trying leads to success and success leads to hope for a future of inclusion.

With two locations in Palo Alto and East San Jose, AchieveKids serves Bay Area children, aged 5 to 22, with severe emotional and/or developmental disabilities, autistic spectrum disorder, intellectual disabilities, and mood, disruptive behavior, and anxiety disorders. Our approach is to address the child, not the diagnosis.

Our vision at AchieveKids is to help students achieve the maximum possible self-reliance and quality of life and look to their future with confidence.
