"After the first day, my kiddo said, 'Thank you SO MUCH for bringing me to this.' I don't think I realized just how much he would benefit. But also, I benefitted a lot - it was so heartening to see other kids who were like mine and meet parents who have had a lot of the same experiences as me. I am so, so glad this program exists." - 2023 parent
