For 17 years, I’ve seen Amy K. Gearhard and her staff provide their students with the utmost opportunities available. Their skill and knowledge of children with autism is second to none. As a therapeutic horseback riding instructor and a former board member, I saw first hand the progression of each and every student over the years.
