“Thank you so much for everything you did to help Sammy. You were always so patient with him and you really understood him. We are so grateful for all of the progress he has made with your help each week. Thank you and good luck!”
Shelby’s Early Intervention Reward:
“My favorite thing about Early Intervention is that I get to work with such a fun age range of kiddos, in their natural environment. This allows me to help support not only the child, but the entire family as well!”
