My daughter has Austism. I have taken my daughter Nature,s Edge for the last year or so. I love the staff and the philosopy they have. They are professional and very caring. They will find what works for the client. Not afraid to think outside of the box. Very positive and determined to help each and every client and meet them where they are at.

My son is going to Natures Edge for speech therapy and we are so glad we found such a wonderful organization. He is progressing and reaching all his goals. I am so thankful for all the wonderful people who work and volunteer at Natures Edge. We are also thankful for all the animals and especially the horses, who with Hippotherapy, have also helped my son with his speech.

Our daughter received speech therapy at Nature's Edge Therapy Center the past 6 months. We are thrilled with her progress! We thoroughly enjoyed working with Becky Payne and the entire staff. We loved all the therapy animals and the beautiful setting. I believe our daughter responded much better to a non-clinical environment and felt more relaxed, thus could focus on the task at hand. We had a very positive experience and would recommend Nature's Edge to anyone!

What a great experience it was at Nature's Edge! The combination of the staff working one on one with our son (diagnosed with selective mutism) and the use of nature / animals for therapy is amazing! Thank you for giving us the opportunity .

Nature's Edge has the right combination of caring staff, enthusiastic volunteers, logistically minded Board of Directors, able administration and a grateful clientele to make it the top non-profit in our area. As a retired school superintendent who works with local service organizations I have knowledge of what is happening in our local non-profit sphere; Nature's Edge provides quality services to those who otherwise would be not be served in this niche.

I visited Nature's Edge at the end of July. My husband and I had been struggling on what to do about our sons meltdowns. It's hard to watch your child go in a downward spiral and not have the tools to help him. The second day we were at Natures Edge he had a full meltdown. Becky and her staff were great. They calmed him down and showed me what I could do for next time. We worked together on what we could do when I returned home. Since we returned home his meltdowns are much milder, and far and few between. The services we received at Nature's Edge has changed our lives and have made a positive change in our son. We now have a renewed excitement and hope that things are going to continue to get better. Thank you to everyone at Nature's Edge. You can't put a price in that kind of therapy. We can not wait to return and show them our progress. I highly recommend Nature's Edge.

We were blessed to be the first family to benefit from the intensive week long therapy where we stayed at NE & had therapists working with us around the clock. I don't know anywhere else you can receive therapy like this! It was lifechanging! Also, utilizing animals & nature in therapy was wonderful! Becky & her staff are highly knowledgeable & we left with a wealth of information-plus newfound hope :).
