“I am very pleased with the program at DPI. Michael loves going to work and it’s hard to convince him that it’s ok to take off! He continues to grow more independent and I believe his interactions with the staff and their prompts are a big factor in this. The staff is very open to suggestions that I have made including having Michael phone me every day as a means to have him practice communication skills. The staff also goes beyond the duties of the program. Michael is involved in a drama program and on the night of the play several staff members came to the theater to see him act in the play. Their care and concern is evident. My husband and I were very touched by this show of support for Michael and he was thrilled to have them in the audience.”
