    "My child has had an extremely positive experience at ICA which has most likely kept him with us at home and not placed in a residential facility, as was recommended by numerous psychologists and medical professionals. In our case, although our child underwent numerous hours of behavioral intervention, as he grew his strength and mis-behavior let his previous teachers and professionals allow him to control his educational environment. At one point in a public school my child was allowed to eat in the classroom and not go to the library because "he did not like those rooms". His OT at school became afraid of him and refused to have him in the OT room fearing for her safety. At Illinois Center for Autism my child was required to transition from class to class and attend speech and OT as detailed in the IEP. Additionally, my child needed to wait at appropriate times when taking turns. Because my child has had discipline at the school our home life is exponentially better. My child, over the years, has learned to follow a routine, and is happy to get on the bus each morning to go to ICA, and more importantly to us, is happier and more disciplined at home, to live with us!"

    "My child attended this school last yr. It is a very disturbing place.The staff is uncaring towards childrens needs. They put up a good front so becareful. This is not the place for a autistic child to be. They will not get better, they will only get worse. There taught nothing. The children only go down hill. I now have my child at a new school and he has bloomed so much in the last 5mo."

    "we really had high hopes for our grandchild in this school, but we sure are disappointed in the way he is treated. in the 3mos he has been there he has regressed backwards. he's been sick and has got to the point where he wont eat nothing except baby cereal. he has quit using his pecs book. we really thought he would get the help he needed. the teachers act so cold and indifferent. sorry ica, but your not cracked up to be what we were told."

    "Oh My God! I wasted 2 yrs. of my sons life at this school. Please listen to the others that posted. My son only got worse. He was always a caring, loving little boy until i made the worst mistake of my life and placed him at ica. I even had dcfs at my door due to abuse that occured at this school by a teacher. My son became very aggressive, withdrawn because of that kind of abuse happening to him daily. Do anything you can to keep your child out of this system. I have moved to a bassc orinated school and it has worked miracles for my son. he's back to my happy loving little boy. The teachers from bassc really do care, they will do anything to help a child. Unlike the teachers at ICA. I thank God daily for giving me a way out of that dist."
