What our students and participants say about us:
“I was always amazed at Lucia’s ability to break down difficult social situations for my son in ways he could comprehend and process. She gave him the tools to be successful socially and he is now thriving in all aspects of his life. Her work is life changing.”
“After struggling for years to find the right interventions for our daughter, it was a huge relief after we moved to the area to find experts such as Lucia and her team right in our own backyard.”
Lucia connected with my son in a way no one else has been able to. She respected, encouraged, challenged and laughed with him as he developed stronger social skills and a wider comfort zone. He has truly grown so much in the years he has worked with her.
