My son has attended this school since November 2011. When he started, he would just sit facing the corner, playing by himself and did not want to be touched or picked up. He now loves going to school and he walks in with a big smile on his face everyday! When he walks into his classroom, he gives his teachers a tight hug and then sits down at the table and eats breakfast with his friends. He now interacts with the other kids all throughout the day and really enjoys working with his therapists, too. Helping Hand is THE BEST!!!
