Review for Autistic Handicapped Children Of Central Florida Inc, Orlando, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Amazing, kind and loving people. They have a Christmas Party all-day activity each year that the kids love! They have games and prizes, and even a visit from Santa Claus which the children of course love. Everyone is so kind to all of the kids and makes sure that each one of them has a wonderful time.

Review for Bishop Grady Villas, Saint Cloud, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My sister was a resident at Bishop Grady Villas for 10 years. She has Down's Syndrome, but after having lived with my parents for her entire life, she was able to live in an independent yet still loving, nurturing environment where she thrived. She was in Special Olympics for years, a program which was supported by BGV so she had the oopportunity to continue. She was able through it to build confidence and a true sense of accomplishment and comradary through her involvement in it.
They went on field trips, shopping trips, and always had something going on. Additionally, they had classes to teach them interviewing and job skills so that if they chose they could work in the community
The staff treat the residents with patience and respect. The environment is one of a large loving family. There's a resident advisor in each building so there is always assistance if needed, but the feeling for the residents is still one of independence. I can't say enough about the peace of mind my family had, knowing she was in a safe place with people who cared about her and all the residents and helped them learn to live independently.
