“My son happily attends Enhanced Day Program Inc.. We soon realized that Dan Hughes and his team are the genuine article. They provide my son with a place to continue to learn and grow every day. They encourage him, coach him, and give him purpose. Never once have I been made to feel he was "too much trouble" or that he was just being parked in a babysitting service. On the contrary, my son has surprised me, his family and our friends, by becoming more clearly verbal, and showing new, mature behaviours every day. Most importantly, I can go to work each day with the peace of mind that says my son is happy, healthy, safe and working with purpose. -Becky G.
When I tell my son he is going to see Dan today, his entire face lights up with his beautiful smile. I know he trusts Dan & his team and that he will be safe. As a mom of a high needs young adult, it is truly comforting to know that such a program as Enhanced Day Program Inc. is available to meet the complex needs of my son, ensuring a stimulating and successful day.
As a mom of a special needs young man, I truly appreciate the communication that is part of the service he and his staff provide. He keeps me informed of the successes and the challenges, ensuring a team approach to the programming support for my son. There is no other program available that provides such quality programming for individuals who require the very highest level of support. The fact that I don't need to send a support worker with my son, speaks volumes for Dan's skill and professionalism with people with challenging behaviours. I truly am grateful that we found Enhanced Day Program Inc. - Fran M.
