Review for A TOUCH OF UNDERSTANDING INC, Granite Bay, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is an awesome program! My son was born without a right forearm and hand and was so empowered when, during 2d grade, he saw the ATOU presentation and listened to people with similar and other disabilities talk about their experiences. Last year, during 5th grade, he decided to join ATOU as a speaker to talk about his own challenges and experiences. He spoke at a couple ATOU presentations last year and this past summer. He is so proud to participate in the program, and is excited to participate during the coming school year. I, as well as my husband, mother and sister, have sat in on the ATOU presentation, and we were moved and uplifted beyond words. This is a very worthwhile program, with a group of extremely dedicated and passionate volunteers. The knowledge and understanding about differences and personal challenges that is passed on to younger folks through ATOU is invaluable.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Extraordinarily friendly, compassionate, and enthusiastic. The staff and volunteers quickly put the kids at ease and are entirely focused on providing open, honest communications.
