“Zayvion began the program as a child who wouldn’t speak, regardless of what anyone said or did. When he was assigned to Jessica, she would never get frustrated with the lack of responses when she would try to speak with him. Instead, she found different ways to encourage him each week, and the impact she has made on him is clear. Zayvion is now one of the happiest and joyful little buddies we have, and frequently partakes in long conversations with Jessica.”
