  • It took six months on a waiting list and the inital evaluation took over two hours. (He was very thorough in his testing) I was upset at all the things we found out, but we got a plan in action and they have made so much progress.

  • We had to wait a month, he was 19 months. It took about an hour and was disappointing as he failed the tests.
