What Parents Are Saying...
Since CSS has been working with my son his aggression at home has lessened. CSS has been very consistent with visits with my son. CSS has helped my son’s behaviors at home. CSS taught my son ways to be calm and be patient when he gets frustrated. My daughter’s crisis counselor is very patient with her. We know she has frequent mood swings. CSS always spends additional time with her as needed. Extra support when I am at my limits.
Thank you for being so patient with my autistic, selective mute son. He works well with you and I feel relieved that he gets to work with you.
