I just wanted to let you know that my son thoroughly enjoyed the February Activity Week, and for the first time ever he was able to tell me what activities he was doing the next day. He was very calm all week and as soon as he woke up he was asking if he was going to HHG. I would like to thank the staff who were working with him during the week for making it a very enjoyable experience and for giving me back my happy boy without his normal anxiousness. I feel he has taken a big step forward!
A Happy Parent!
