    • "Being parents of a child with an alternate learning style can be frustrating for both parent and child. It is difficult to watch your child struggle in a world where there is minimal understanding of the problem. The Academy at SOAR has been an answer to our search for understanding and education for our child. The staff revitalized him and created a learning environment that celebrates uniqueness, improves self-confidence, and teaches students they can overcome any obstacles they encounter."

    • "We cannot thank you all enough for the time, energy, patience, and creativity it took to teach Josh. Our desire has always been for our son to love learning - not just put in his time - but to truly find a passion in life that will allow him to flourish. Our family values each other's unique talents and believes strongly that we all have a path to follow. This SOAR process helped Josh gain a great deal of confidence, and see how much he can persevere even under trying circumstances. We can only imagine how much effort it takes to motivate these young people, and we honor all the hours you gave to them. Your feedback to us in so valuable and we will continue to rely on any works of wisdom you can provide for strategies in the coming school year."

    • "Our 12 year-old son has participated in 3 different SOAR summer camps over the years and is currently attending the SOAR Academy school year. Not only is he always excited to return to any program given by SOAR, but his progress on all fronts has been amazing (as observed by family, friends and therapists). Most importantly, his own observations about his life skills and social abilities have given him self-esteem and independence that give him a new and unprecedented HOPE FOR THE FUTURE! He has learned to see things from multiple perspectives, not just his own -- which is of course one of the key social skills he needed to learn! Through the physical and psychological challenges of the SOAR program, our son has learned to advocate for his needs and work through challenges with people other than his parents. Our son has always been completely safe and we have fully trusted the highly trained staff, who are supportive but do not coddle our kids as parents are sometimes apt to do."
