Review for Laura Baker School Association, Northfield, MN, USA
Laura Baker is a unique place in Minnesota for people with disabilities. For individuals like my son Seth who lives there it offers a small campus community where he is able to know others, participate in social activities, and live in a connected way. Seth has severe autism and can't participate much out in the community. This left him isolated and living alone in a room in a group home much of the time until he was able to come to Laura Baker. At Laura Baker he is surrounded by a group of caring professionals and other residents that mimic a family for him, something he never had in prior placements. This clean, well cared for campus with 5 group homes, embraces its residents as though they really are related and their quality of life really matters.
