After spending too many years, dollars and tears on trying to make the public school work for my son, we feel so fortunate to have found the wealth of resources available to him as a student at Sand Hill School. The teachers, specialists, administrators and staff are all individually committed to the growth of each child. My son has grown academically, but also in executive functioning, social skills, emotional development and in addressing his specific learning differences. There are no words that can fully detail the depth and magnitude of what CHC and Sand Hill School do. Yet, when I see my son feeling confident, at ease in school, trusting the good intentions of his teachers, willing to try, and most of all happy, I can only say that I wish we had sought the support of CHC & Sand Hill sooner!

After our son diagnosed with Autism and got overwhelming information regarding treatments, we were so confused and helpless until we got introduced to Early Support Program (ESPA). We were so delighted with the staff professionalism and helpfulness specially Gina Baldi who guide us to right sources. She is the only one who always supports and sends us very useful information.

I've been a volunteer at CHC for almost three years and have attended some of their free parent education classes. CHC does an incredible job helping children, teens, and parents when they need it most. I continue to be inspired by the great work of CHC!

Its an excellent organization with wonderful staff. I have a 5 year old son who is on the autism spectrum and I was new to the country knowing very less about the services and help available. The CHC staff helped me from beginning for identifying a good set of services for my son, they also conducted free parent trainings and the staff is very approachable. CHC will try their best to address your concerns and I personally got benefited a lot. I would strongly recommend this organization to all the parents of the special need child.

As a parent of a child who struggled with ADHD, I am impressed by and deeply appreciate the expertise, knowledge and care exhibited by CHC professionals at every level. It is clear that everyone who works at CHC is passionate about helping children, teens and young adults to reach their full potential.
Before I got involved with CHC, I was not aware that their services cover such a broad range of needs—spanning behavioral, mental health, social-emotional and educational challenges. CHC is truly a wonderful resource for bay area families.

We feel so fortunate to learn about CHC through ESPA. The program offers 1:1 sessions to discuss techniques to support the child in becoming a confident learner in all aspects of development. We had several sessions with Gina Baldi and have learned a lot. She's knowledgeable, caring and resourceful. We still attend CHC workshops and always find them helpful and informative.

We are so grateful for the support of Christina and Gina with the ESPA program at the CHC. They have been a tremendous source of information and knowledge for us regarding our 18 month old son who is developmentally delayed and may have autism. We could not be more pleased with how helpful they have been to us.
