When I needed emergency surgery, Miss Lynne took my son, without question, while I recovered. Then two, my son was traumatized by my sudden absence and inability to engage with him.
Miss Lynne and her staff offered him comfort and kept him on track for his potty training. They kept him stimulated, occupied, distracted and they always sent him home exhausted and happy.
Over the years, the staff has identified learning disabilities and worked on compensatory activities for kids with OT needs. They recognize the need for individualization balanced with group activities.
As a former teacher, I appreciated First Step's hands on approach, attention to detail, and most important, the way they put the emphasis on teaching, and engaging with the students, in such a positive environment.
