Communication can make such a difference. Here is a great letter we received from a parent at the TPAS Adventure Place program:
“I am so happy with the progress my son has made while in the IBI program at Adventure Place in the past 8 months. His communication skills have improved. The number of words he uses has increased. He has become more independent when dressing himself.
I used to have to repeat my instructions many many times, my son will now mostly respond to my instructions after one time. He shows much more affection to family members, he will give us hugs. His imitation skills have improved. He watches me and will copy what I am doing, this is something that he wasn’t doing before.
Thanks so much for all the help and support given to my son and me in this autism journey.”
