"My son had a physical delay so his physical therapist recommended your website to learn all about his development. Now he is where he needs to be & I am using Pathways.org for my second child's developmental process. So, it has been a blessing to learn from this organization and put to practice with both of my boys. Y’all are amazing. One of the best teachers for parents or children care givers out there. Thank you!"
