Acton Day Treatment – I like how my child was treated with love and respect and how he progresses really well.

Parent

Acton Day Treatment – The program exceeded our expectations 100%. The care and compassion given by the staff will stick with our son and us forever. His confidence is so much stronger; he will participate in groups and is able to apply the skills he has learned. This is an amazing program. Thank you for the service you provide. Our son will be able to succeed at anything he puts his mind to now that he has these skills.

Parent

EIEIO – What I liked the best is the constant support of the staff, their willingness to find the best way. Respect, positivism and have engaged my son with the school setting with no struggles anymore.  This type of program should be expanded to provide more children with this opportunity. This approach should be taught to teachers and school staff to make our children’s lives much more happier and really inclusive.  Thank You!
