What parents are saying about our programs...
Regarding Circle of Friends: “Did I hit gold or what? Alex’s group is working on turn-taking, attending, following directions, asking and answering questions and interacting appropriately in various social situations. We receive video clips of the session periodically and were given a social story to read to our child before he attends to reinforce good behavior.”
