“I am so thankful for Appalachian Banner Academy. My son has soared in just the short time he has been in school. I get videos of things that I couldn’t believe he could do. Coming from public school, he struggled to draw a single line from dot to dot, now, he is tracing complete letters and numbers. He now knows the letters of his name and can spell it in order. The teachers and staff are phenomenal. We are blessed we found Appalachian Banner Academy!”
Tyson has excelled now that he is in a safe and accommodating learning environment.
He has made tremendous growth in his reading skills. He is learning what it means to be a friend and loves being around his classmates. This school has already made such a positive impact on his life, and I am excited to see all he can accomplish in his future at Appalachian Banner Academy!
Appalachian Banner Academy has been life changing for our entire family.
We have tried public schools with an IEP and virtual learning with our son. This was stressful for him as well as us. We were all just overwhelmed and every day was a struggle. Our son would cry all the way to school.
He started Appalachian Banner Academy this school year, and it has been such an amazing experience.
Everyday, he is excited to go to school! He is always so thrilled to tell me about his day!
I feel like his teachers and I are a team. They helped me to get him to wear socks & shoes and brush his teeth! They even helped figure out something that he would eat during lunch time.
Through the last few months, I have noticed that my son has an increased: tolerance for change, emotional flexibility, and conversational skills.
All in all, he is so happy and just thriving!
Appalachian Banner Academy has been absolutely wonderful and has changed my son's life! Every person that works there is so passionate about what they do. They believe in my son and his ability to learn and they have never given up on him, whereas others have before.
Before attending ABA, he didn't know any of his alphabet letters, and only a few shapes and colors. Now he knows all the letters of the alphabet, can do puzzles, and can even spell his name. Those are only a few of the academic accomplishments that we have seen. His communication has improved greatly and the best thing of all is he absolutely loves to go to school! He asks me every night before bed if he's going to school tomorrow. I have seen his face just light up when he sees all of his teachers and friends and it's just magical. I cannot downplay the importance of feeling the peace of knowing that my son is so well taken care of and loved on while he's away from me. ABA goes above and beyond and I'm so thankful that we as a family have them as a part of our lives and I can't wait to see how my son grows and develops over the years to come!
