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 since starting Little Star. In three-month’s time his vocalizing blossomed and his functional skills soared. They had him potty-trained and drinking from a straw almost immediately.  These sound like small milestones for some, but my son was over six and we had been struggling with these things for years.  He has since made remarkable leaps in his education too.  Once labeled severely intellectually challenged and only “trainable,” he can now among a long list of other things sort/identify colors and numbers, put puzzles together, and has even starting to talk in short sentences. I can’t say enough about the level of educational excellence Little Star has provided to our Son. And I am not the only one who notices. People are constantly asking us where we have him because they are amazed at his progress. I am always praising Little Star Center! ”
