Testimonials

Intensive, customized approach “The Delrey School offers the promise of a bright future for children and adolescents with cerebral palsy and other childhood motor disabilities. Ms. Mimi Wang and her staff have developed an innovative program incorporating state-of-the-art equipment, educational techniques and rehabilitative therapies tailored to promote self esteem and personal success for each student. To me, what makes Delrey so exceptional is the staff, who have dedicated their careers to enhancing the lives of these children. Through this intensive and customized approach, Delrey prepares students to be successfully transitioned to other educational programs and to success in adult life.”

She’s not afraid anymore “My daughter has a tremendous smile on her face, for now instead of hopping she is walking with a walker, instead of bolvis feeds she drinks and eats with her peers, instead of a faint whisper she is not afraid to voice her opinion.

Prepared me for first grade “I really am happy with Delrey. It’s a great school. It helped me in walking. It potty trained me. It made me ready to go to Mrs. Galassi’s class in first grade at Federal Hill Preparatory School. I miss Delrey so much.”

Finding possibilities, making progress “When you have a child with severe delays in all areas of development, the future can often look bleak. UCP Delrey School has helped me to see possibilities in my son’s future. Even small gains in terms of his ability to move, to communicate, and to feed himself add up to progress at home and in his community.”
