Please post a review to The Parent List!


DID YOUR CHILD NEED HELP for an emotional, developmental, learning or health issue this past school year?

Did you work with a provider that made a positive difference in your child’s well-being and you would recommend to another parent?

Please consider posting an anonymous review on the Hinsdale Central High School PTO resource called The Parent List.  It currently contains nearly 80 positive reviews on area health care providers that have helped D86 and D181 children with issues that include: anxiety; depression; school avoidance; eating disorders; insomnia; substance abuse; peer relations; stress; autism spectrum; ADD/ADHD and more.

The list is a central location to find information on doctors, therapists, support groups, in-patient and out-patient programs, tutors, nutritionists, books, and holistic medical approaches that other parents in our community have found helpful for their child.

The submission of reviews is closed to D86 and D181 parents only. Your fresh review of a resource may make all the difference in the future to a child attending school with your own.

Parents and guardians are solely responsible for deciding to use any of the service providers on The Parent List in any capacity, and district 86, district 181 and the Hinsdale Central PTO disclaim all liability for any damages, injuries, losses, expenses, or claims of any kind arising out of the provision of services by anyone or any agency appearing on The Parent List.
