Rosalie Whitlock

Children's Health Council
Executive Director
In her 30-plus years' experience, Dr. Whitlock has been a passionate and tireless advocate for kids and families. She has been serving as executive director at CHC for the past ten years. Before becoming executive director, she spent nine years on CHC’s board — two of those years as chair. Under her transformational leadership, CHC has become a collaborative community leader in education and mental health, providing innovative and collaborative practices to reduce stigma around ADHD, LD, anxiety and depression, and autism — assuring that all kids, teens, and young adults have a chance to reach their full promise and potential.

Prior to her work at CHC, Dr. Whitlock was head of Charles Armstrong School for 11 years and led the development of cutting-edge curriculum to help kids living with learning differences succeed based on their strengths. This experience gave her an intimate understanding of parents' concerns and the impact on the whole family when a child is living with learning differences and/or mental health matters.

Dr. Whitlock is a former member of the International Dyslexia Association's board of directors, is a founding member of Parents Education Network (PEN), and was the executive director of the Accelerated School Project at Stanford University in their School of Education.
