Kids Friendship Club Parent

(Our son) was able to generalize and apply many of the skills he learned here into school and community. His teacher reports increased participation with peers and initializing at recess and lunch. We could really see more positive confidence performing at his piano recital and at gymnastics – thank you! “

Corey and Michelle Baker

We didn’t have any answers until we found Reach.

Sunny Liu

I felt I am not alone with Reach help, although I understand it does take time to improve the quality of life, especially the life of the family with special needs.

One year ago the extend of his language at age three was “want juice”. Now my son can come home and tell me about his day. If you don’t believe that is a miracle you are not looking hard enough.
