CAMELOT NORTHWEST CENTER FOR AUTISM PARENT QUOTE

  • “I cannot thank you enough for encouraging participation, to see his smile when that medal went around his neck was priceless. We have never traveled as a family before, stayed in a hotel, or taken our son to a Denny’s. Here everyone was treated with respect. We all learned something this weekend.” (regarding participation in Special Olympics)
