Tamara worked with our son who has significant needs, including Down syndrome, anxiety disorder and sensory processing disorder, for several years. She was instrumental in helping him grow over the years, especially socially and emotionally. She has a calm, caring and reassuring demeanor that he was instantly drawn toward. She created a safe and comforting environment in which his many needs could best be met. As his parents, we appreciated that Tamara worked collaboratively with us to ensure optimal social and emotional growth for our son.
