“We have been extremely happy with our therapist and the value that CDI brings families through its programs and services. Our sessions have helped us understand our child’s needs, strengths, unique traits, as well as true reasons behind certain behaviors. Overall, we feel that we now enjoy close, quality relationship with our child, built on respect and understanding, which is invaluable.”
