"I Can" Corner
GRADUATE OF CENTER PROGRAM
The Center has helped me tremendously not just the physical and social aspect of things that the center has to offer, but it offered me opportunities to be an employee and work at the center. I have grown so much from the center ever since I was four years old.
The Center is awesome! The best part of the Center is the helpful people. I like coming here because they help me be more independent. I learned how to tall kneel and can now kneel in church every week. I also made a lot of new friends just like me!

I honestly don't know where my family would be today without the center for independence. The program is wonderful but the staff is irreplaceable...they have become our family and our life line. Greatest place in the world!!!

Conductive Education means empowerment, self-confidence, independence, and self-reliance

I have attended the fundraising events for the Center for Independence Through Conductive Education for the past several years, and am always struck by the huge impact that the Center makes on each child's life.
