Don't let the back office get in the way ....
Special Children Center has provided my child with excellent therapies for just over 12 months. SCC is much more than a place for therapy. I have yet to encounter anything but exceptional therapists. Sometimes the office staff can be brisk, but I understand the difficult job they are performing every day. And they have cared very much about my child as an individual person - encouraging those around him to make decisions on what is best for Him. I just cannot imagine a better place for a child with special needs - great or small! And we must also not forget that SCC is a non-profit. And since the state did not consider my child's needs (they refused him services because he didn't test in the lowest 10 percent for his age group) I have had to fight the insurance battle - ugh!

Since beginning therapy, my child has been diagnosed (by an Allergist) with allergies to Soy, Wheat, Dairy, and Eggs - and also has been dx as PDD-NOS/high functioning. With continued therapy at SCC I am confident that he will attend a typical public school for kindergarten.
I encourage any parent who evens suspects slightly that their child may need help with skills (talking, walking, community play, picky eating, sensory defensiveness, etc) to contact the Special Children Center for an evaluation at the very least - it is the very best decision we could have made for our child as well as our family!
And please let us all remember that insurance companies are everywhere and any place that provides services will need to fight the insurance battle - to base care decisions on insurance alone is a very difficult decision. Let's all work towards the common good - support Nationalized Health Care - Care for Every American!
Just know that once you begin therapy at SCC your life and the life of your child WILL improve immensely!
