She often struggled with tantrums and aggression. She also experienced challenges with listening and responding skills. Since coming to Lighthouse, Brynleigh has made so much progress!

  • Brynleigh has decreased her aggressive behavior and tantrums significantly while at the center.
  • Brynleigh has since mastered 10 one-step directions and listener responding skills and is working on more!
