Our daughter has gained so much from being in school! All the staff has a way of teaching her that I was not able to do. She gets all her therapies at TEC and is progressing! She absolutely loves going to school and wakes up full of smiles when I tell her time to get up for school! The ratio of teachers to students is wonderful. The staff takes their time with each student as each student learns differently! Staff makes learning fun. She and I love her school and recommend it to everyone! Wonderful job!
