The best way to know if a parent and family skill building program will be a good fit for you and your family is to hear straight from the mouths of those who have actually experienced it. Here’s what some of our current and former clients are saying about services they received from The Little Willie Center Rise and Shine Program:

"Teachers called me multiple times a day before my child entered the program; now I get one call a month!"

"My child always shut-down when he got angry; now he will ask if he can talk about why he is mad."

"My child has been bullied all her life. She now has discovered who she is and can successfully ignore what others think of her."

“The Parent Coaching you have provided has really made a difference in our home. We are finally seeing a difference in ourselves and in our kids.”

“We really enjoyed the initial home-visit. I wish there were more in-home sessions.”

“The commute to and from The Little Willie Center had become stressful and difficult. It is nice that we no longer have to worry about getting a ride anymore, because you will always pick us up each week.”

“We did not have to convenience our child to speak up and out in class. He participated with the class once he was comfortable with the class routine.”
