What People Say About Spectra

I feel supported here.

— Spectra Staff Member

Families have been changed for the better through Spectra.

— Spectra Staff Member

My experience working with Spectra was a perfect blend of professionalism and personal touch, capable and caring in equal parts. I wholeheartedly endorse the work they do and would recommend Spectra to anyone in need of support for their child with learning differences.

— Denise Alleman, Educator

I love how friendly the staff are!

— Spectra Parent

Spectra Centers, Inc. has consistently shown their dedication to children, youth, and families over the last ten years that I have been associated with this wonderful organization. Spectra staff are openhearted, willing to go the extra mile and take chances on students when other systems have failed them. Parents are grateful to be included as part of the interdisciplinary team at Spectra.

— Barb Taylor, Catalyst Education Design Consultant

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.

— Corky Zygowicz, Spectra
