Fostering confidence & competence

“My child, who is autistic, and I were often made to feel uncomfortable in public places. He sometimes has behavioral issues that make it hard for him to be accepted in play groups. I was feeling isolated and discouraged. The River Center’s Children’s Enrichment program changed all that. They welcomed my son with open arms! For the first time, I felt hope – as a parent and for my child.”
