“We enrolled in JumpStart when our daughter, Emery, was 18 months old before we even received an official ASD diagnosis. While working with our JumpStart coach, our daughter started making eye contact again, she started having word approximations, she started pointing. It was like night and day. SARRC is the only one who helped us through this whole process. The JumpStart online platform and coaching sessions were invaluable.”

-Michele, Emery’s mom, Buckeye, Ariz.
