When Layden first started ABA at Cornerstone, he had difficulty responding to his name, had to be heavily prompted when interacting with peers, took us by the arm to take us to what he wanted, did not appropriately play with toys, could not easily identify body parts or mimic the movements of others. We were battling tantrums, physical aggression and non-stop hoarding of objects. Today, Layden is able to focus for longer periods of time, has a long list of words in his vocabulary – no longer needing to drag us by the arm to communicate. He has mastered more complex tasks like going to the dentist, getting his hair cut, washing his hands and unzipping his jacket. Layden independently interacts with his peers now, sharing toys and showing compassion. We are so proud of Layden and all of his accomplishments and cannot thank Cornerstone enough! We are so happy that Cornerstone has become part of our family.
