After undergoing one-year-long treatment, together we have witnessed her improvement. I am glad that we had made a wise decision by sending her to SI world, to go through the sensory integration therapy. Otherwise, she would have made no progress at all.
We would like to thank SI World and the therapists of their efforts and companionship along the way. Thank you!
