My son has been at chileda now for several months and he has made amazing progress. The people who work here are gifts from God and they have a high level of caring and compassion. My son was most difficult and violent upon arriving at chileda, due to both being on the wrong medications and bad experiences at previous placements.. they helped my son thru his rough spot, worked with doctors at the mayo clinic to get his medical situation and medications under control and day by day he improved.. now he is doing quite well at their school and making new friends with the staff and other residents. If you have an autistic child they may really be the help your kids needs. They are truly wonderful and caring people who have the skills to really help autistic and other developmentally challenged kids who are in need residental care. I cannot give Chileda enough praise. They gave my son hope for a bright future and a wonderful life and for that i am eternally grateful.
