“Demario was born premature with low birth weight. He showed moderate developmental delays around 5 months and even over months of his development. At 5 months old, he had motor delays and could not push up during tummy time. He was pretty far behind in his language skills. He was not using words to tell me what he wanted. He had a hard time communicating. Within weeks of working with therapists at Harvest Intervention Services, Demario started pushing up on his arms and trying to reach for toys. By 14 months, he was pointing and using some sign language to ask for something. Harvest Intervention Services has made a huge difference in our lives.”

“My son has Autism Spectrum Disorder. He made a tremendous amount of progress in his language skills because of the Developmental Therapy we received from Harvest Intervention Services. Our therapist went above and beyond what is required and provided our family with quality services and showed she cared.” Our lives have been greatly impacted by Harvest Intervention Services."

“Over the past 2 years, Joshua has overcome many challenges in his behavior! He has become better at following directions without such resistance and exhibits overall less inappropriate behaviors. We are thankful for his progress. It is amazing!”
Mother of Joshua
“Since beginning Developmental Therapy, my 2 year old daughter, Sabrina, has met many of her developmental milestones! Before therapy she was not playing with toys right, understanding directions or using her words. Now she is saying some of her letters, using one or two words to tell us what she wants and showing us certain pictures in books. Thank you, Harvest Intervention Services!”
