“Giggles ATC has been a blessing to our family. My son, Dillin, first attended Giggles at a very young age. Giggles helped him really begin to talk and come out of his shell. We stopped coming for a bit, but we have now found our way back. Dillin (age 14) is now attending school full time with Giggles. What a great staff. They make him feel comfortable and he opens up now more than ever which means we actually are seeing Dillin step out of his comfort zone. He receives everything he needs with Courtney and her staff, from Social skills to academic progress. THANK YOU from the Miller’s…..”-
“Every day we are thankful that Giggles Therapy provides our son Gavin with a safe, happy environment for improving his social skills, life skills, and verbal communication skills. Gavin is challenged in his development of these skills resulting from his Autism. The caring members of the Giggles team have worked with our family to mold his curricular development, with skill development provided by Giggles. This is something that we found could not be accomplished in public school because of the intensive needs of special needs children in conflict with the work load of teachers in an inclusive classroom. At Giggles Gavin receives the one-on-one attention he needs to accomplish his goals.
Thanks to the entire Giggles Therapy team for caring enough to work with our family towards Gavin’s successes in life, and for the love you share that is perhaps the key to all successes.”

The typical school environment had exposed Mick to some very negative experiences. During Mick’s time at Giggles, he has been allowed to mature at his own pace, he is also growing self-confidence and experiencing academic success. We are pleased with Giggles’ academic program and grateful for their cocoon-like environment. Every child at Giggles is different, so being different really isn’t so different. Giggles has been good for Mick, but it’s also been good for Mom and Dad. Social events (birthday parties, etc) often turn into opportunities for parents to talk and share… to revisit the adventures of parenting a special needs child, the depth of the struggle and find encouragement among kindred spirits… we’ve all been there. The social events also give us an opportunity to step back and appreciate those small victories in our children, like blossoming self-control and social skills.

So let me first say that insurance is difficult to understand even for the most prepared; I was unprepared. I was at my wits end and let me say Giggles has been there to help. All the phone calls, all the insurance verification, nervous worry all the time, that I thought my son was going to get left behind, and in those moments each person has encouraged me. They let me cry, and gave me a hug when I didn't think I could get through another day. When a normal school would have called and said come pick him up. They do not. They help Jerrod work through that behavior, and actions, and a cool down where when other schools and teachers would said he's done. They say tomorrow is a fresh day. They have helped me understand how to work with my child to get him through behaviors. To understand what he needs to help him function in everyday life. They teach us how to us different technics to present a resolution to whatever behavior is happening. Every time I think of how could we have been so blessed to have so many teachers who care and are invested in my child as much as I am they have answered the call. They are engaged, invested, and loving to my child, when he is at his lowest moments. They have saved my sons life and mine. We are forever grateful for Giggles, their staff, and now I call them family. Giggles takes the most difficult to thing and together we work through it as a family.
Thank you Giggles,
Having a history of behaviors, our son was isolated in therapy at previous centers. Giggles is the first center he has been allowed to interact socially on a daily basis with his peers while receiving life and language skills, ABA therapy and going on class field trips. He's even had an opportunity to be class leader! Giggles loves our son. And it's made a huge difference in our lives!

"I researched types of treatments and facilities that provided services. I met Courtney founder/director of Giggles. I was given a plethora of information on their treatment style but also possible help for funding. After a year their improvement was remarkable. Day after day they continue to improve. I am so thankful to have discovered this hidden gem in the DFW metroplex. If it wasn't for Giggles I don't know if we would have survived these past few years. Warmest regards."

"My son was diagnosed in 2011 with autism. I then came across Giggles Therapy. From the moment Courtney answered the phone she was already compassionate and understanding of my situation. My son enrolled in the summer program, he was finally making friends. This was one of the best decisions I have made for him. With the right tools and guidance Giggles provides there is hope for kids with autism."

"My grandson has attended Giggles since 2012. His social skills have flourished and he has excelled in every way. He attends full time for school and we are so proud of his progress. I would recommend Giggles to everyone."
