Parent Testimonial

Dear Splore,

I am writing to thank you for the wonderful service you have performed for my son.He is a wonderful and spirited boy, but his Asperger’s Syndrome, especially at his young age, is a real impediment in social and educational settings. Prior attempts to get him to rock climb had proved very difficult and anxiety producing; and our “instruction” seemed to be turning him away from the sport more than anything else.

His Splore mentor and the rest of your team brought him out of his shell and taught him to climb. He loves it, and moreover, he beams with pride for days after each lesson. This pride also seems to spill over into the rest of his life: he asks to try new games, new foods, and seems better equipped in new situations. I am convinced that his lessons with Splore have contributed greatly to this effect.

Finally, my husband and I can’t thank you enough for making our son happy. The life of a child with Asperger’s is filled with anxiety. It can be difficult for them to let their guard down and just have fun. His smile and laugh are the most beautiful things in the world to me, and I want to thank you for bringing them out.

Sincerely,
Rock On! Parent
