Lauren is true every day hero. She was one of the few people who gave us HOPE when our son was diagnosed. If a parent doesn’t have HOPE the child doesn’t have a chance. Lauren’s impact on our son was immediate and powerful. She brings out the best in her kids and empowers their parents to be confident in their abilities as well. She is perfect ratio of confident, deliberate and loving. She brings an energy level like no other and is hands on ALL DAY LONG. My son hasn’t been with her for over a year but the mere mention of her name changes negative behavior and at the same time he watches the DVD she created of their 2017/18 class ALL THE TIME. Every ASD family needs Lauren in their lives.
