Rush Day School Testimonials
Empowering Minds for a Brighter Future
Rush Day School in Chicago, Illinois, is a not-for-profit therapeutic school offering education and treatment for autism spectrum and emotionally disabled children ages six to fourteen. The goal for each student is to return to a less restrictive school environment. The majority of our students return to a public or private school in regular education with support. We want to empower minds for a brighter future.
Testimonials from Students and Parents
"Rush Day School rescued us and took very good care of our child. He was able to relax, complete his schoolwork and feel safe again to function in a group. We gained insight into his fears and behaviors with the help of the staff."
"Everyone at Rush was caring, professional and patient. They helped our family get through some very rough times. They didn't just treat the child, they treated the whole family."
"The proof of the program's excellence is that our daughter is doing very well, and her self-esteem is high compared to her enrollment at RDS. She is a joy to be around and thinks of the future in a positive way."
"The staff was always available, and I still consult them when I have questions or concerns." "The professionalism and concern for the benefit and welfare of each child was demonstrated on a daily basis. There is no perfect environment, but Rush Day School came close."
"Because of the small class size and adult-to-student ratio, my son was able to learn how to modify, change and deal with his emotional highs and lows."
"Can't say enough about the efficacy of RDS and the quality of the staff!"
"I've learned that friends are one of the keys to happiness." "Every staff member at Rush was so nice and helpful. Being at Rush is like living with another family."
"Before I came to Rush, I had failing grades and was angry all of the time. I have changed a lot. I have learned to control my frustrations in an appropriate way and have earned all A's and B's."
"When I first came to Rush, I was short-fused, easily saddened, shy and easily bullied. Now I have friends and am outgoing and happy. I've learned how to have a longer fuse."
