John's Story

Written by Joan V. - John's mother


An excerpt from John's mother's correspondence with us sharing his accomplishments as an adult:

John ..., who went to the Centre 22 years ago is doing great. After graduating Suma Cum Laude from Marietta College and getting his Masters Degree in Accounting from BGSU, he has now passed the exam and will get his CPA. He is working as an Auditor and loves it. He has a nice apartment and even goes to Happy hour on Fridays once in awhile. A big change for a Hyperlexic, once slightly autistic boy.

Because of the Listening Training program he has a full and good life. I am so glad the Centre is still open giving hope and help to those in need. Congratulations on your 25 year anniversary!

Matthew's Story

Matthew, was diagnosed with severe autism when he was just over two years of age.  He had always been under stimulated in terms of movement and there were many difficulties in conversation and social situations.

Since the program we observed tremendous growth and change n Matthew. The biggest change, was a huge increase in the development of his vestibular system. Matthew is climbing, jumping, running and so much more comfortable in his own space... Matthew is growing in leaps and bounds in social situations...Wow! The quality of engagement has really shifted...there is huge growth in speech as well....
