Throughout the year, Nari came to feel comfortable, valued and adequately challenged. Faculty and staff noticed her rise in confidence, improved behavior, newfound sense of responsibility and self-control. These changes proved to be translatory from her academics to her social and interpersonal behavior, having a positive effect on her relationships as well.
“Nari was a perfect fit for our program,” said Anthony Aiello, director of the program. “She took to it right away and has been a model student with very few issues. She even achieved gold-level status, the highest behavioral status a student can reach.” Nari continues to grow and develop her academic, behavioral and social skills, Anthony added.
Nari’s mother is especially proud of her growth, noting that she’s grateful for a program that finally recognized — and realized — Nari’s potential. Both Nari’s mom and her teachers believe the program will have a lasting impact and empower Nari to succeed throughout her entire life.
