Trevor has made so much progress

Trevor was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder by Volusia County Schools, which recommended his immediate transition to the Full Day Mild Varying Exceptionalities class.  But Trevor had made so much progress while enrolled in Head Start - he was speaking in 2-3 word sentences.  Head Start teachers and staff refuse to give up on a child's potential to be their best!

It was more than my greatest expectations

I want to thank you for all your help.  It was more than my greatest expectations!  Your contractors were excellent and appeared every day with a good attitude and went right to work.  I am so thankful for oh so much.  The refrigerator was so unexpected that I kept going to it off and on all day - even gave it a kiss once!  Of course, I'm most thankful for the new windows.  Thank you!

Working together with the family as a team ...

Juvenal began the 2015-16 school year with severe dental decay, 13 teeth out of 20 had severe issues and needed to be restored. He was also facing the possibility of losing his 4 front teeth.  Since he did not have insurance, the Family Advocates helped Juvenal's family complete all of the paperwork for Medicaid. Once the child was approved for Medicaid, they and the Oral Health Services Coordinator, scheduled Juvenal's pre-operative exam for oral surgery. The surgeon, Dr. Elmore, completed the pre-oerative exam, identified his needs and felt confident that she could address them all. She was able to restore all 13 teeth! Working together with the family as a team, our Family Advocates and Health Team were able to provide a successful outcome for Juvenal who is happy and thriving in the classroom with a great smile!
