Testimonials

Here are some unsolicited “thank yous” from some of our parents:

board“Since entering the CSC, my son is a more emotionally stable, highly motivated individual. He brings home all the excitement that all his teachers have.”

“He is acquiring a taste for knowledge. For a parent it’s the best gift in the world.”

“I thank the entire staff at CSC. You all have made an everlasting impression in all of our lives. Thank you all for your patience and kindness. My child has improved so drastically in his speech, it’s amazing!”

“This school played a major role in my son’s development. He is more confident, articulate and independent. The staff at CSC is wonderful and proven to be great, positive reinforcement for my son. He is accomplishing many tasks he was not able to before attending school.”

“We came to you two years ago full of fear. Well, all I can say is, we know we made the right choice. You all have made this journey into a new world for us so much easier. We will never forget your compassion and gentle way.”
