I Have Great Hope for His Future!
My son’s time at NHA has been beyond great! He loves it so much that he doesn’t want to come home with me!!!
Thank you so much!! I have great hope for his future!
For the past two years our daughter has participated in Conductive Education at Sara’s Garden in Wauseon, OH. Sara’s Garden is one of the few locations in the United States that offers this type of intense intervention service. After each summer session we have been amazed at the progress that she has made through the program.
She has participated in typical physical therapy since 10 months of age and we have seen so much more gains after a total of eight weeks of Conductive Education than after eight years of physical therapy. This type of treatment is amazing! The conductors that lead the sessions are also amazing. They know how to motivate, inspire, and teach our children so that they can do what doctors may have told us they would never do.
This summer, she began working, using a walker, with only the minimal assistance from her conductor. Never in her life has she gotten this close to finding independence in walking. Through their encouragement, her confidence increased, as did her ability. In her regular physical therapy sessions she has never been able to do this. While they worked on walking, something in the methodology of Conductive Education, really worked for her. This is a means to a more independent life for her.
I truly believe that if we had not found this treatment, she would be so much further behind in her independence that where she is now. Conductive Education is a wonderful method and is invaluable to our family! The unfortunate part is that there are minimal facilities in the United States that offer it. Sara’s Garden has been a God-send for our family. We have felt so supported, encouraged, and blessed to find and be able to utilize their expertise.
As a family, we know the benefit that Conductive Education has brought. We look forward to future sessions at Sara’s Garden. They have made a tremendous impact in the life of our child.
Before coming to NHA my son was having horrible behavior problems at his school. With his poor communication skills we were unsure of what he was trying to tell us. From the moment we stepped foot into NHA and spoke with the staff we knew this was the right place for our son. He has had a very positive experience with everyone at NHA… and has had ZERO behaviors since day one!! We couldn’t be happier with how he is doing. Thank you!
Our son really struggled in the public school setting, a place where he was expected to conform with typical kids when he was not. Moving him to NHA was the best thing we could have done for him. He has gone from hating school to loving it. We have seen him grow, become more confident in himself and be proud of the work he has done. The small classroom setting has been a huge benefit for him and working with two teachers instead of eight or nine has been awesome. These teachers really get to know your child and what they are capable of. Getting all the positive feedback from them has really boosted our son’s confidence. There should be more schools like NHA. I am so thankful that my son gets to attend there!
We are so pleased with the progress our son has made in just six short months. We have noticed many changes in him. He is now able to use words instead of relying solely on sign language and grunting. He can identify words and is doing a wonderful job communicating with us. He was never remotely interested in potty training and now goes 100% at school and 50% at home. We can honestly say there is nothing better than hearing your child’s voice form words when verbalization was basically nonexistent before. We are so happy he is able to learn and thrive in his classroom.
Moving here so that my son could attend New Horizons Academy was the best decision I could have made. His progress has exceeded my expectations. He has learned to try more and to communicate his needs and has blossomed from the praise and encouragement. Overall I have a first grader who is happy and progressing. What more could a parent ask for? Thank you for all that you do!
New Horizons Academy is an exemplary model of education for students with special needs. You have an outstanding administration who truly listens and cares for your students and their families. You staff is phenomenal and your classrooms and sensory rooms are state-of-the-art. I’m so thankful that my child attends school at NHA!
My daughter can read! My daughter can add! My daughter can count! My daughter can spell… and write her name! My daughter goes potty… no more pull-ups! I am so thankful for all that you have done for her! I could never imagine that she would be capable of doing the things she now does. We love Sara’s Garden and New Horizons Academy. You guys and gals are just the most wonderful people and teachers that there is. Please keep doing what you do!
Our son has improved so much since attending NHA. His ability to read, write and express his artistic talents have expanded beyond words. He now loves school and looks forward to attending every day. The friendships and respect for adults and peers has grown thanks friendship and respect he receives from the people at school. We love to see him prospering into a young man and we owe so much of this to NHA. The school has giving him, and others alike, an opportunity for a higher quality of education and a place of comfort. Thank you!
