Our family has been with Victory Academy since it opened its doors. There were only eight students back then, our son Ezra one of them. I’m not surprised, and am thrilled, to see what Victory has become. We were initially relieved to have found VA simply because we had finally found a place our Ezra could be honored, celebrated for who he is, and understood.
Over time, though, the reasons we stay increase. The teachers and therapists are consistently gifted, well beyond anything we’d experienced before VA. As a parent who is extremely concerned with the idea that autistic children are often made to feel that they have to change who they are to be okay in the world, I have been so happy with the way the staff works with my son. All of the work he does at school, whether academic or therapeutic, is thoughtfully matched to his skills and challenges.
My biggest concern for Ezra is that he go through life with a solid sense of self-worth. In a society that is just beginning to build autism awareness and opportunities for people with autism, this I believe will be his greatest asset. With the education and immense respect and care he’s receiving at Victory, I know he’ll always be at his fullest potential.
