"They Tailor everything for each child, no one size fits all here and that's great because each child is different and the things they need. I feel my daughters therapist does the ultimate best to give her the best of what she needs while also getting into that something new box that she has trouble with. The staff is also so great and friendly. Ready to answer any questions I have or provide information and also a school note ready for me because I will almost always forget. Thank you Kidspot for a great experience every time."
