"What we found the most beneficial was the individual care and attention our son received from the teachers, therapists and the EA. It has been a wonderful program and we really appreciate everything our son has accomplished in it. The additional parent workshops have been great and above and beyond our expectations of what is included in such a program. Thank you!
