"Sol was [at the Springboard School] for two years. She began talking, smiling, engaging others, playing, answering questions appropriately, laughing out loud and sustaining eye contact…. She was accepted to every Kindergarten class we applied for. Now she is a confident, happy, well-adjusted young girl, who has made great friends in and outside of school.” - Alumni Parent
