I think the CCMC fell from Heaven and landed in Neptune. Not only are they caring and understanding of these special young people but they taught me sign language so I could communicate with my son who has autism. He also rides the bus using the Kindercare bus company. Thank God for that bus company because any other bus company would of thrown my kid off the bus for his behaviors. They know how autistic kids are and they have Children Center staff as drivers and aids. I'm so greatful to the whole team.

My son has been at the chilren's center since he was 3. He has had his share of good teachers , as well as bad. Although the teachers stay there is a very high turnover rate with the OTs/PTs/STs. This necessarily may not be a bad thing since children with autism need to learn generalization. There home program component is very week and doesn't get better as they get older. But they do try and I can say they genuinely care for the kids. Its not a perfect school and maynot be a good fit for every child but compared to what is out there, this is a good school and I will continue to keep my son there for as long as need be.

My son has been at the center for 15years and when he came here he could talk , throw fits and couldnt read or do math . Now he reads everything he sees ,doesnt throw fits anymore .He works, and even swims ,he dresses himself . He has austim , if it wasnt for the childrens center I dont know what I would do. I am not worried about whats going to happen when we are older, because he has learned all life skills here. Even dealing with money. I cant thank the teachers and aides enough for there help.The people who work there dont do it for the money , you have to love your job and children to do what they do . They also have parent training so you can teach them the same things at home. Thank God for Childrens Center.

Great school for kids that need it; my son has both autism and Down Syndrome. Lots of school trips and activities going out into the community. (Budget cuts in public school elimated all trips). Pre-vocationald and vocational training is available for the older kids. Great at helping with life skills, another thing the public schools struggle with. This school has been so good for my son, he has been there for 7 years now. One problem, while I see little turnover with teachers, but lots with the therapists, speech, OT, PT/ they leave to get benefits in the public schools after a few years. The school may not be the best fit for all special kids, but for some it is a perfect place to learn and grow. The public school told me they would only be babysitting my son, there was no class appropriate for him.

Big campus. My daughter is out of here. Autism mixed in with muilt handicapped kids - no way. Short staffed, revolving door with teachers/aides. School uses bus aides (kinder-glide) in classes and then back out in bus at end of day. Lots of money raking here and another storage facility for kids that are not learning. They do behavioral accessments but not on their own students-make a lot of money with DDD and school evals. There is no parent training, no in home consults and no programs for kids. Check this out throughly before you send your child here for an education. This school is a waste.

Large campus style school that is reported to have over 90 school districts sending children for their day school programs. My child is dx with Autism and I had been told this is a premier program for teaching children with this diagnosis. This may well be true but as my child progressed and is now at the upper end of middle school years there is no program to address my childs specific needs. My child is mixed into a class with multi-handicapped children and received a very poor education that does not address the specific needs of a child with Autism. This school has no idea how to deal with behavioral issues that are common in Autism. I have seen a great turnover of teachers in the last year and there is no parental training seminars or interface as they profess in their website. I give this school a failing grade.
