Hands. Down. Amazing! Pingree made such a difference on my children's ability to eventually talk, follow instructions, play with peers, be much less destructive, begin to read emotions, etc. Unfortunately, we were only able to do the preschool program, but without this amazing, intensive preschool experience, my children could never have done as good as they have in the school district ...and I honestly wonder if they would have ever been potty-trained! Kristie Thompson was my daughter's teacher back in about 2002. Then, in about 2011, when I called to put my son on the waiting list, upon hearing his last name, Kristie (who was now directing the preschool program) paused, then asked if he was, by chance, my daughter's little brother. It had been almost a decade, yet she still remembered my not-so-little-anymore little girl! Other teachers, aids, and bus drivers did too. And everyone took excellent care of my son! My sister-in-law is an experienced special education teacher, and my father is a very experienced, now retired elementary school educator (teacher, principal, teacher specialist, director of student teachers), and they both have raved about the miracles Pingree blessed my kids with! I will always be grateful! P. S. As of 6 years ago, there was a 2-year waiting list, so even if you're not sure it's Autism, or don't have an "official" diagnosis, get your child on that list immediately. It just takes a short phone call. No paperwork. By the time your child's name comes up, you can get a free evaluation, or you can politely decline. If you have any suspicions at all, opt to go get tested. In my experience, MOST DOCTORS go to GREAT LENGTHS to NOT, I repeat, NOT LABEL, and therefore, NOT DIAGNOSE, essentially diqualifying your child from many critical services they may need. EARLY INTERVENTION IS KEY!
