Finding Little Star Center was a blessing

“Living in Ormond Beach, Florida with two sons on the autism spectrum was very difficult.  The public school system there was not equipped to provide what my sons needed and there was no private alternative. Finding Little Star Center five years ago was a blessing.   We moved the family to Jacksonville specifically so that Luke and Sam could attend, and the results have been amazing.  My boys have grown from five-year old “infants” with virtually no life skills, into nine-year old boys who are potty-trained, able to sit at a table and eat meals with utensils, talk or communicate in meaningful ways, read, write, listen, and follow simple and complex directions.  And all of this learning has taken place in a loving environment, without stressing the boys or...

My child thrived in the structured, yet flexible environment of Little Star

“When thinking about what to say about Little Star Center it is hard to put into words. For our son Max, Little Star has been a part of who he is for as long as we can remember. Starting out with just four fellow students at the age of 5, Max attended school full time and now as a pre-teen, attends the summer camp program. Amazingly, some of the same teachers are still with Max after all these years and most parents know how important consistency is to our kids. Max thrives in the structured yet flexible environment Little Star Center provides. His program is written for him and him alone and our ABA Director really listened to what was important to me as a mom and incorporated those goals into his daily program. Not only have they worked on numbers,...

The teachers and staff truly care about your child

“Little Star Center has been my son’s school for several years. The teachers and staff truly care about your child. They listen and are willing to work with you on the goals and challenges of your child. We have had true challenges and medical issues that they handled professionally and communicated greatly so I felt comfortable. Tyler is moving on this year and we will miss the teachers tremendously, but they will always be in our life and in our hearts. Thanks so much for a great experience in teaching my child educational and life lessons.” ~Teresa White

I can’t say enough about the level of educational excellence

“After three years of exhausting the resources of the public school system with no progress in our son’s education or social functioning skills, I turned to the Little Star Center for help.  I researched the schools for children with autism and other developmental disabilities throughout the Jacksonville area. The staff at Little Star is what grabbed my attention at first. They really seemed to enjoy their work and their interaction with the children seemed genuine. Having been with the school now for a little over two years I know now that these teachers are not only top notch, but compassionate as well! You can really see this by how the children respond to them; my son loves to go to school! I have also seen a tremendous growth in my son’s abilities...
