Testimonials

Daquan's Story

When Daquan came to us, he was a scared, angry and frustrated nine-year-old boy. Born with intellectual and developmental disabilities, Daquan had no parental involvement. He had been moved from one hospital to another, he would exert what control he had by acting out and being uncooperative.

As time progresses, Daquan developed positive relationships with the classroom staff and was motivated to work. While before a staff person was at his side to keep him on task, now he wants to show that he can work independently. He is gaining confidence, pride, articulation and a very caring side. Daquan just needed a supportive and secure environment to show his true colors.

At Oak Hill School, we believe that each student, regardless of the severity of his or her disability, can make progress."

— Oak Hill School teacher

Sam's Story

Sam suffered a stroke, which left him with little ability to communicate, making it hard to understand him. His frustration grew to the point where the family had to build him his own apartment over the garage because they said, "we can’t live with him." The family sought help of the NEAT Center at Oak Hill and learned of an augmentative communication device, a device that could speak for Sam.

Within a month, Sam had his new communication device, was speaking up a storm, and had moved back into the house. His ability to once again communicate with his family provided Sam with a sense of independence and self-esteem that is priceless.
