“The River has helped my Autistic daughter socialize with peers her age, and most importantly her own brother. It is a safe place where no one judges her and all of her unique qualities and quirks are cheered upon and encouraged.”

“My daughter has shown improvement with her social and communicative skills. She is always talking about the activities at The River with much excitement. She also seems more secure when she is around strangers. She will take the initiative to present herself and talk to people she doesn’t know.”
