All of the therapists that we have worked with through JCFS have been caring, professional and supportive. Our child has made tremendous progress over the past 3 years, and we attribute this to the dedication and attention of his JCFS team. After visiting and observing many clinics for our child, we felt JCFS would be the best match for our family, and we have never regretted our decision. They are all wonderful!
