My son comes daily for the feeding program and everyone on his team are absolutely wonderful...especially Miss Morgan and Miss Anna. The amount of patience, support and compassion means the world to me and my son.

If you're the parent of a kid who's struggling socially and/or in school and you can't seem to find any answers on why, please take a minute to read this full review because I used to be that kid and this place literally changed my life. When I was in elementary school, I was a challenging kid. I was late to school almost every day because I'd get caught up with something, my hair was always tangled because I was really uncomfortable with brushing or combing my hair or putting my hair in a ponytail, I didn't really care about how I looked, I was a super picky eater, I didn't have a lot of friends because I had a hard time with conversations, and I was a really creative kid, but I really struggled with math. My Mom took me to different psychiatrists and specialists, but nobody seemed to be able to give them any answers, and my elementary school even wanted to put me in special needs. I faced a bit of bullying and I thought that I was stupid, but I tried to remain hopeful that someone would figure me out. Finally, at age 10, I went to the Neuropsychology Department at Kennedy Krieger Institute to be evaluated. The staff were super nice and very patient with me, and they diagnosed me with ADHD, which slows down my processing speed and ability to understand social cues. I got medication and a 504 plan shortly after. I'm now 17 years old. I have an amazing group of friends, I've got a 3.7 GPA, I had a rough year this year, but finished with mostly B's and a few A's, even in my honors precalc class, I was elected treasurer for theater at my school, I'm gonna go to college and study accounting, and I found out last night that I got a 1450 on my SAT (for clarity, a 1450 is the 99th percentile nationally and the scale for the SAT ranges between a 400 and a 1600). Some things haven't changed. I still have a hard time with conversations sometimes and I still spend hours on my homework, but even though those things may never change, I've still made progress and I owe a lot of that to Kennedy Krieger. They gave us answers when nobody else could, my life has been changed forever because of them, and I will never stop being thankful for all they did for me. If you're a parent reading this, whether you decide to go to Kennedy Krieger or not, please don't give up. You're probably tired and maybe a little frustrated, but keep going. You'll find answers eventually and your kid may never be "normal", but they can still make progress and be successful if you believe in them. Again, a big thank you to Kennedy Krieger for changing my life. I couldn't have done this without you all. Keep up the good work!

It is a place for where you would want to send your kid to get the best care. As soon as you hit the door the staff is so friendly and knowledgable. I love the whole atmosphere. Also the aquarium in the lobby waiting area, will put you and your family at ease. Making this a great facility. and very clean.
