“Sara Chapman is one of the best teachers I've ever had the privilege to know. While working with my son at his preschool, she demonstrated tremendous compassion, creativity, resourcefulness and innovation. She treated my son as if he were her own. Sara's professionalism and intellectual abilities are unmatched. We're so fortunate that she is now a consultant for our school.”

"We have worked with Sara Chapman for close to 3 years now. She has a unique gift in bringing the best out of the child. She is always positive, creative with endless energy, and brings meaning to little things my son does which means a lot to our son and us. My son's biggest challenges are motor planning and expressing his ideas and he has made great progress with those under her guidance. It's amazing the way she integrates my NT daughter into my son's session naturally. The Parent training component of the program is something that has been very useful to us. We feel very fortunate to have found her and highly recommend her work."

"Sara's respect for my son is deep and unconditional. She would never try to change who he is, or to "fix" him. When Sara is engaged with my son, she's relying on a great deal of knowledge and experience, working with his interests to help further his emotional and social development -- but at the same time, she is very clearly having fun playing with him. The joy that she takes in interacting with my son is genuine and mutual. From the first day he met her, my son has recognized Sara as a kindred spirit and a true friend."

"Sara has been my son's teacher for the last 5 years and its amazing how she understands special needs children as a whole person, not just their educational needs."

“Sara Chapman is one of the most patient and compassionate teachers my son has worked with. Where other organizations and resources saw a child with complex issues and difficult behaviors, Sara saw an individual and an opportunity. Her commitment and patience were unflagging and she has developed a life long bond with our son and our family. We are so grateful that Sara has touched our son's life in such a positive way and has improved the quality of his relationships.”

"Sara has a genuine love and care for the children she works with. That love, coupled with a natural gift, builds a bridge she crosses to meet, play, enrich, and better her little friend's life. She's remarkable."
