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

Rating: 5 stars  

We have traveled to Jacksonville from Gainesville (1.5 hour drive) several times over the last few years to take our daughter to visit Hope Haven. Becca has Down syndrome and is now 6 years old. We have taken her for the 4 part, 4 hour evaluation that includes physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, and an educational consultation. There is also a 5 part eval that includes time with a medical doctor, but we have not used that one. We LOVE Hope Haven! They are so positive in a practical and constructive way. They offer tips ranging from using playground games to strengthen muscles to emphasizing visual rather than auditory learning. For both kindergarten and 1st grade, I've made copies of sections out of the Hope Haven report for Becca as an introduction for her teachers. I explain that it reflects our hopes and philosophy about inclusion.
