I just wanted to say thank you again for everything you did for Matthew this month. I am still in disbelief over what he did today. I know his skills are not at the level as most of the other students that attend, but we appreciate his being able to participate in the program. He was happy leaving every morning and still happy when he got home each afternoon. And clearly, he learned some fantastic things about himself.
