"Finding the right Autism waiver provider can be a daunting task, especially when you need early afternoon IISS support. Celebrate Abilities found me not one but TWO technicians to join our home team. These ladies have captured the heart of our daughter and all the other members of our family. Thanks to an amazing provider who I would highly recommend to anyone!"
