    • Quote Mark You will never find more loving caring knowledgeable people in this field I have humble means financially and quality services for my son that has autism most times are very pricey therefore many places I have been are like elitist communities; and I am forced to tolerate it to ensure that my son receive quality services. Upon meeting Amanda I was blown away with the wealth of knowledge and suggestions she gave me to better understand not just Autism but my unique autistic child to say the least and then I had a crisis and I had to take my son to a therapy session and Amanda not only asked if I was all right and walked away like so many professionals in this busy field do she took time talked with me and assured me everything will be fine and this was my own personal issue nothing to do with my child again I was blown away. Then on came Ally who is just as wonderful kind caring knowledgeable and concerned as Amanda Then the two best people I have ever met formed an idea followed through and Emerged and you will see for yourself from the moment you walk in the door therapy begins for the family without you even knowing you are being taught how to deal with your child and then when you see you child look someone in the eyes for the first time standing right in the entrance of Emerge & See [Atlas] you know you have brought your child to the right place and the founders of Emerge & See [Atlas] ensure that everyone feels like family and even give the parents free time sometimes overnight you will also be blown away. I apologize if this post seems verbose to you but there is so much more I can say about this wonderful program a number ratting will not do it justice. Quote Mark

    • Quote Mark Being able to see where you work with the children was very interesting. Each time a student makes progress it must be a great thrill for you to see! There appeared to be so many items to stimulate the students needs on so many different levels! I loved also your special light room. I wish both of you special ladies much success in this very important endeavor. I also really enjoyed your chapter in Cutting Edge Therapies too! Quote Mark
