Review for Square Peg Foundation, Half Moon Bay, CA, USA
It is heartbreaking for a child to be rejected from organization after organization because she or he isn't neurotypical. My gentle but autistic son was set up for failure after being removed from athletics and private schools because he needed extra attention. At Square Peg, he is greeted with enthusiasm and love, not the rolling eyes and deep sighs of his former coaches and teachers. I was worried at first that his anxiety would cause problems, but his teachers at Square Peg have coaxed and guided him with easy patience and now he faces old fears with new confidence. He gets to take his time, he is never rushed, and he is encouraged. The horses are chill even when he's stressed. He is also learning how to behave with the many wonderful dogs, and when he isn't into horses, he spends his time kayaking on their little lake. Thanks, Square Peg.
