Helping Kids Thrive
Hunter is now comfortable with many social tasks, like talking to other kids and voicing what he’s anxious about. Hunter gained many abilities from therapy, but Angie says the greatest gift was simple – a hug from her son.
“He used to put his arm around you, but his body was saying, ‘Please don’t touch me,’” said Angie. “Now he gives me real hugs; he will even initiate them! The difference is amazing. I can’t find the words to express my gratitude.”
