The day I came to tour, it was like worlds opened up. It felt like a big, warm hug.
I feel very comfortable with my child coming to St. Joseph’s Villa every day. They treat him like he is family.
My son wants to come to school. He will greet you now, look at you eye-to-eye and try to engage. Without places like St. Joseph’s Villa, I think a lot of us parents would be lost. They not only help your child, they help you.
My child’s quality of life has improved in every way. He is extremely fond of his teachers. They let him teach them how he wants to learn and interact with the world, and they turned that into a game plan to help him build skills.
My experience with the Sarah Dooley Center for Autism has been nothing short of exceptional. The staff sincerely love Zach. They have helped him come a long way.
