Our family has benefitted greatly from the treatment our two children have received at Horizons. Jake has gone from communicating with only hand gestures and noises to speaking full sentences, allowing him to communicate wants and needs. His inability to understand simple phrases caused him to be reserved and easily frustrated. Now he understands what is being communicated to him, his processing time is much faster and it has led to fewer meltdowns and more meaningful interactions, especially with his sister. Ava has come from only repeating what she hears as her form of communication to being able to communicate original thoughts and feelings, allowing her to be more independent at home and participate in her general education classroom. She was terrified to leave our driveway when we started this journey but now she enjoys playing with her neighborhood friends. Her food aversions started as only eating a handful of brand specific foods to now not limiting brands/textures, having dozens of foods she enjoys at home and at restaurants as well as being open to trying new foods.
