Review for College of Adaptive Arts, Saratoga, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My son loves the College of Adaptive Arts. He was attending a Day Program, but when I enrolled him into classes at the College he did not want to return to the Day Program. His favorite class at first was Belly Dancing. Now he loves Theatre and Speaking With Confidence. He enjoys the collegiate atmosphere at CAA. Although, he is quiet and shy he enjoys hanging out with his peers. The Instructors are very attentive and observant of the students. This appears to aid them in learning how to motivate and teach each individual student in accordance with their abilities and learning style. They are patient, understanding, professional and well trained in the education of students with developmental disabilities. My son was diagnosed with Down syndrome at birth. He completed high school in Atlanta, Georgia. He attended Post Secondary at Fremont High School in Sunnyvale, California. We learned about the College of Adaptive Arts while he was participating with Angels on Stage. Wiley loves acting, singing and dancing. The College of Adaptive Arts has provided him with the opportunity to learn, develop skills and participate in all three. The founders have gone above and beyond our expectations to make us feel an integral part of this unique organization of higher education for this special population.
