It’s okay if your child doesn’t fit in a box – we don’t have boxes here.
What we do have is a practice focused on helping children gain the skills they need to function well, succeed and be independent – and a team that will do its best to make your family feel heard and supported throughout the process.
Dr. Catherine Simms, Florida Children’s Institute
