Aggies Elevated: High expectations, with support

Backing up and letting Matt figure things out on his own is by far the most difficult thing I've ever done in my life! But I'm seeing growth and I trust this program implicitly. We have been involved in special education for over 10 years and I feel like these past several months of Matt being in Aggies Elevated is the first time I've seen it being done the way it is supposed to be done. Your program provides the right support to allow Matt to do as much as he is able. It's a beautiful combination of high expectations and support. One of those components has always been missing in previous experiences. Either the program didn't provide adequate support -- and he truly couldn't do what he needed to do -- or it didn't have high expectations and he didn't grow. We feel like Aggies Elevated has been an answer to prayers and I'm already panicking about what we're going to do in 18 months when it's over.
