Review for Hope Therapy Incorporated, Middleburg, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My son has Down Syndrome and is extremely low tone. He also has lots of sensory issues as well. He started riding with Hope Therapy on Jiggy, the miniature horse, when he turned 2 years old. At the time he wasn't making many sounds and had horrible extension issues. A year later, my son is walking and on the verge of running! His extension issues are completely gone. He is making tons of sounds and has a few words. Even his sound aversion issues have improved dramatically. Since the owner, Becky, is also a licensed occupational therapist, the sessions are both OT and PT aimed. We couldn't be more thrilled!

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

every possible aspect of my son's development.

Review for Hope Haven Children's Clinic and Family Center, Jacksonville, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My son was diagnosed as having Down Syndrome when he was one month old after having been born at 28 weeks. I know the state run Early Steps program would eventually be an option for receiving therapies, but they are slow to get the process started. I was able to start receiving therapies from Hope Haven almost immediately. Their therapists there are amazing!!! My son had a lot of feeding issues and their speech therapists did a fabulous job helping him overcome those problems. Kris, their physical therapist, is one of the best I've ever seen. I feel so very blessed to have Hope Haven in my community and I know they had so much to do with how well my son is doing now.

My son now can drink out of a sippy cup and is finally walking!!!
