  • Nicole, T's Mom

    “Kate Rauscher is our "Miracle Worker". Our son T, was diagnosed with ASD at age Two and after researching all of my options, it was clear that there was only one therapy for our precious little boy, that was proven to help children just like him get better from this disability, and that was/is ABA. Only after a month of therapy with Kate, our son who was non verbal, non responsive to his name, nor showed any eye contact, (along with a list of other behavioral problems), was not only saying words that we had never heard before and responding to his name while looking us in the eyes, but we could see that sweet spirit we had been longing to see, come out in him. The frustration was already getting better and T was happier and ALIVE! I sit here crying as I write this, because I honestly don't know what I would have done/would do without Kate. T is turning 5 soon and besides some socialization skills that he still struggles with, you would really never know that he had any challenges if you were in the same room with him! Kate is not only our "Miracle Worker", but she is forever a lifelong friend and part of our family now! Our little T would never be where is he today if it wasn't for her. We are forever grateful for this amazing woman! “
