Success Story

I am very happy with Kedren’s program.  Having interaction with other children has helped my son develop his speech.  Being able to see other children having the same experiences helped him, and he had learned from them.  The socialization helps children to understand that there are differences with the children with special needs, but they all work and play together.  My son is returning for a second year in the program.  I think that the program is really great.
