What other families are saying about Child and Youth Community Support Service

“I struggled with my ADHD-diagnosed child – we had problems in school and when we were together in public. Our community support specialist not only helped him in the classroom, but we have learned so much about how to redirect behavior! I’m no longer so exhausted after a trip to the store or going out to eat.”

“My son is doing so much better in school and even had advanced scores on the standardized achievement tests! It was not only thrilling for us, but his teachers were also very pleasantly surprised.”

“My daughter had no ‘real’ friends – sleepovers or birthday party invitations were non-existent. Sometimes it seemed the more she tried, the more she alienated children her age. It hurt to watch her struggle. I can’t tell you what a difference your services have made in our lives. Not only is she receiving invitations to social events, but I’m now having to limit her text messages from friends! Thank you!”
