Children's Health Council

Rosalie Whitlock, PhD

Executive Director

Dr. Whitlock spent nine years on Children’s Health Council’s Board of Directors–two of those years as Chairman–before becoming Executive Director.

In her 25-plus years’ experience, Dr. Whitlock has become a leader in learning. As Head of Charles Armstrong School for 11 years, she led the development of cutting-edge curriculum to help kids with learning differences succeed based on their strengths. Dr. Whitlock’s experience has given her an intimate understanding of parents’ concerns and the impact on the whole family when a child struggles with learning differences, anxiety, ADHD or autism.

Dr. Whitlock is a former member of the International Dyslexia Association’s Board of Directors, is also a founding and current board member of Parents Education Network (PEN) and was the Executive Director of the Accelerated School Project at Stanford University in their School of Education.
