Review for United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) of Central Florida, Inc., Orlando, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My daughter began receiving services as an outpatient at UCP when she was 16 months old. She started going to pre-school at 3 years and continued to receive therapy at UCP. Because of UCP's educators and therapists, we were able to transition Isabella to a regular classroom the year before Kindergarten. We chose to do so, because we lived 30 minutes away and the commute to her assigned school was only 5 minutes away. Isabella finished her Kindergarten year at the top of her class because of the foundation that UCP provided her from such an early age. We were blessed when Early Steps referred us to UCP because we found the support, education, and therapy our daughter and family needed. For this, we will forever be grateful and I will always continue to support UCP in any way I can. Thank you for this gift.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My daughter was able to transition to a regular classroom a year before starting Kindergarten despite her diagnosis and challenges.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

raise more money to build more schools and facilities similar to the UCP Bailes Campus in East Orange County so that we could service more children in the community.

Role:  Board Member & As a Board Member, I have been chairing the Charter School Board, but more importantly, I am the recipient of UCP's services.
