From the Team in Madison, NJ

“We spent a lot of time with our child’s therapist, but we also met a lot of the other therapists here. And, every one of them, while different styles, had the same warmth and the same caring attitude about really understanding how to help our daughter do better. And it was such a nice feeling to see people who really cared, as opposed to just doing a job.”
