Our experience as a family has been amazing. Not only did Nate grow, but with Lisa, Luli and Dr. Margarita's help we grew as a family. The parent coaching sessions were wonderful. Lisa has helped Nate in many different areas including eye contact, his sense of self, his verbal communication and of course his physical abilities. This is more than I could have imagined. Luli's time with Nate was also special. He has always loved music, but after the past three weeks, he really feels it and has to express this. He just breaks out in dance and says, "I NEED to dance!" The staff has also been great and always accommodating. Julia--you are very lucky to have such a wonderful group of dedicated employees.
