"I love getting to watch the small every day trials and successes turn into BIG successes for our families. It's hearing on eof my clients say my name or tell a parent they love them for the first time. It's when our parents are able to have a bit of normalcy taking their kid out to a restaurant or to the movies for a family outing because of behavior changes we are working towards in the clinic. The look on a kiddos face when they work hard and learn something new. THAT'S why I've never dreaded coming to work in my 7 years at ECAC." - Montana H.
