Back in Fall of 2001, my daughter Casey was welcomed with open arms By the MMC on Charles St. The difficulties she had with day to day life and her social skills made things a bit more difficult for us all here in her home environment. After she spent 10 months with the Teachers and Clinicians, working to improve the aggressive moods and learning skills, we found that with the school in conjunction, teaching us ABA skills, that Casey's life was improving almost daily! THey helped us transition her back into public schools here, though new scenarios upset her, we worked through them as a unit and the MMC Team guiding us.got Casey back on track. in 2009, she was introduced to the Dixfield school system and is excelling there! Her social skills, her classwork, and follow through has been amazing. Just one class, just her math class is in the classroom with Lucy Kochis, and she is still growing in leaps and bounds there. Her lowest grade throughout the past 3 years, has been a mid 80! She has been in plays, but the biggest leap was this December, she took part in a play at 49 Franklin St. in Rumford, and covered where tech had minor mistakes. She soared thru it and was glowing!
