    • Tammi and Chris are amazing people. I have been with them since our kids were going to Face Pasco in Zephyrhills. It was these two people that started the help we needed to get a new school. The work they do for all of our kids is beyond what I expect from anyone. They treat all the kids at our school like their own. We are not just friends but we are a family. The progress my son has made because of them is more then I could have asked for. Because of them my son loves going to school every day. I would and do recommend this school for any parent with special need children.

      Kristy S
