Parent Perspectives

Here are just a few of the many testimonials we receive each year:

“Our little boy,
He does not speak.
He works hard to move
His hands and his feet.
He does not understand,
So many things.
We did not know
What the future would bring.

But you all knew,
How much he could do.
How to reach him, and teach him,
You taught us all too.
Our little boy,
Fills us with pride,
He has come so far,
Thanks to you by our side.

With our deepest gratitude for all of your expertise, encouragement and, most of all , your tremendous kindness.”

“Looking back on our three years of involvement, what strikes me most was how caring and tender each EI staff member was with my child. All these people were offering suggestions, working with my family, and trying to help me mold/create a successful little person. I went from being confused and sometimes angry, to be being grateful. Several of these talented people went from being total strangers, to being trusted members of my extended family. And on the days when my son had a breakthrough or achieved a milestone, I honestly think the folks working with us were almost as excited as I was!”
“As parents we have been given a challenge in meeting the needs of our son not only emotionally but physically and Thom Anne Sullivan Center has helped to put both our lives and our son’s life in a more clear perspective and we sincerely thank you all for this. Words cannot express how thankful we are to have had the opportunity to have had your services available to us.”
“Our family appreciates all the good work, time and patience that was given to our son. Our time with the therapist has been the most caring, supportive, educational and understanding time.”
“As you guide the kids along with exercises and routines, you are also teaching the adults. Many of the parents will watch you like a hawk, as I did, and ask for suggestions of what to do with the kids when you aren’t there. Therein lies the real magic: the magic of empowering the parents by giving them tools and resources to help their children. I went from feeling powerless by the circumstances under which my child was born, to feeling powerful by the knowledge of how to specifically help my son.”
