These environments enable her to improve her skill sets and learn new ones as well. Alexis was able to improve on her verbal, social and physical skills. It was incredible for her to express herself after the programs. She would happily describe the events that took place, all with a smile on her face. Being a parent with special needs, I felt comfortable and relieved that my daughter was in a safe and thriving environment. Alexis was able to be herself without feeling uncomfortable. She also created and developed friendships which makes me very happy. The staff are incredible, and I’m grateful to them for taking care of our precious Alexis.
