Why Choose Potential, Inc.
When it comes to Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), parents often feel overwhelmed and are unsure where to turn for help. While there are plenty of opinions to be found, all experts agree that intervention at an early age is vital.
We understand the emotions that accompany an initial diagnosis and want to work with families to help their children (infancy-adulthood) learn to achieve their full potential. “One of the first things I tell every parent I meet with is that, while there is no cure, there is treatment.” — Kristine Quinby, Founder, President and CEO
