Testimonials next prev

  • Our 5 year old son attends the social skills group with East Side Social on Sundays, to help develop his social skills. Since working with Alicia, Kimia, and the rest of the ESS team, my wife and I have been astounded at the progress he’s made! Just a few of the things we love about the group:

    • The high and consistent level of ABA therapy that ESS practices.
    • The high number of therapists in the room during sessions – ensuring that nothing falls through the cracks.
    • The detailed feedback we receive about the activities and progress of the sessions.
    • Our son loves it! He literally dances down the street after each session.

    But most importantly, we feel that the team really “gets” our son – adjusting to his needs and making sure his time there is spent most effectively.

    We are incredibly grateful to everyone at ESS, and only regret that we didn’t find them sooner. We have no hesitation in recommending them.
