ALPINE LEARNING GROUP INC
September 25, 2012

My 4 year old son started Alpine Learning Group a little over a year ago and is making some remarkable strides in his learning. We are beginning to see some meaningful language emerge, which is remarkable to us since early on a few professionals (not associated with Alpine) told my husband and I that he may never speak at all! Alpine is changing not only our sons life but our daughters as well. She is 11 years old and has become a peer mentor at Alpine. In addition to mentoring, my daughter has formed a true friendship with the remarkable young lady she began mentoring last year. They see each other outside of school, text, shop, etc. just as she does with her other friends. This special relationship has shaped who my daughter has become with all of her friends. She has learned compassion, empathy and patience which have all made her a better person and friend. She is also running programs with her little brother during the home consultation program, where our sons teacher comes to our home biweekly and works on behaviors and skills we need help with. This teacher is amazingly patient and skilled at involving my daughter in my sons learning and making her feel as crucial as she truly is! In addition, through the Outreach department at Alpine we have teachers come to our home for ten hours a week to work with our son. These women are true professionals with the biggest hearts I've ever had the pleasure to know. It's incredible how the entire staff at Alpine takes these threads of my sons program and weave them into the most comprehensive learning program with the most amazing results! My son is growing in leaps and bounds because he is a student at Alpine and because the staff at Alpine educate the whole family on how best to help our son in every setting, with every skill and it's all done with respect and love. A parent couldn't ask for anything more!

ALPINE LEARNING GROUP INC
September 29, 2011

My son started Alpine just two days after his third birthday, it was a dream come true! For a family with an Autistic child, being invited to attend Alpine is like winning the lottery. Alpine addresses the whole child, as well as the family. Our son's teacher makes a weekly home visit to set up programs and goals to improve our son's behavior and skill set as well as improve the quality of life for our whole family. The entire staff as a group are the warmest, most loving people I have ever had the pleasure to meet. When I drop off my precious boy at Alpine every morning, I know he will not just receive the therapeutic education that is vital for his progress but he is cared for and loved by wonderful people! When I pick him up at the end of the day, I see an enormous smile on an exhausted face...What more could a Mother ask for? In the two short months our son has been a student there, he has learned how to ride a tricycle, use a computer mouse and eat pizza with his hands to name only a few of his many new skills. I know that whatever potential is inside of my son will be realized as a result of being a part of the Alpine community.
