Kind words from our friends…

You have given a little boy wings to fly.

“Waban has played a key role in turning my son’s life around. When Andy entered Waban at three-and-a-half, his prospects for a normal life were very dim. Waban sparked a curiosity and fueled a fire in Andy. The curriculum, speech, occupational, and physical therapy were important in his development, but the integral elements were the teacher and the teacher’s assistants who showered Andy with love and encouragement. You have fostered in him an unbridled curiosity for life, a realization that there is progress if you work hard enough and have a true understanding of compassion. You have given a little boy wings to fly.”
