Client Testimonial: 2017
I remember the apprehension of placing our three and a half year old son, with his little jacket and backpack, on a bus for a 40 minute ride to his summer education program. Fortunately Stasia Hansen was waiting for him at the other end. She had given us hope, and that summer he was immersed in an ABA program that she designed and managed.
When our son was aggressive she was warm, when he resisted she was persistent, and throughout it all she focused on his learning and development. The most prominent memory is the hope provided by Stasia. When we were 'at the end of our rope’ due to fatigue or frustration she was a reassuring resource.
The hard work was worth it! In time she taught him to communicate, play and participate in a classroom with support from an aide. Two decades have passed and he just completed a Bachelor degree in Computer Science at a small university in Connecticut.
Every day we are grateful for the life that Stasia gave our son.
