"Dear Members of the Italian Welfare League,

I don't know if I can find the words to thank you. Jonathan is a very special boy. He is funny, quick-witted, sassy, loving and smart.  Unlike many kids though, he has to work so hard for EVERYTHING! He can act out and get frustrated when he isn't understood.

He loves words and getting his point across. He will find a way to be understood. Thank you for helping him get more PROMPT sessions. He is  speaking now because of this. We really appreciate all of your help and support.  Love, David, Colleen, Andrew & Jonathan."
