Review for We Care Services for Children, Concord, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Like many parents, I waited excitedly to hear my daughter's first words. And waited. And waited. Yet by the time she neared two years old, she had yet to say "Mama" or "Dada". She was diagnosed to with a language/social delay just shy of her 23 month birthday. Our case worker recommended group therapy at We Care.

She began attending classes at We Care two weeks after her second birthday. To say that she has thrived would be an understatement. She began communicating through sign and started adding to her spoken vocabulary.

While her speech is still a work in progress, she's not afraid to try to say what she wants... and now I've got quite a chatterbox on my hands! Every word she speaks is like music to my ears -- so different from the tantrums and frustration that ruled her just one year ago! Best of all, we have finally heard the words, "I love you, Mommy/Daddy." So much of this is thanks to the wonderful work that We Care has done with her and we cannot thank We Care enough.

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the programs at We Care. Our overall experience has been glowingly positive -- my daughter is proof positive of that. The teachers and staff really care about the kids, work so closely with them on to help bring out the best in each and every child.

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

my daughter. Every day her vocabulary grows and she has blossomed while at school. She loves her school and is very, very happy to be there. We are so blessed to have found such a wonderful program to help our daughter.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Nothing! They're perfect as is.
