    "My daughter has been attending this school for 3 months and I'm blown away on how much she has excelled academically and socially. The staff is wonderful and friendly and I'm always greeted with a welcoming smile. My daughter has not complained at all which is a great relief. She is happy and comfortable at her new school and no longer stressed. I highly recommend any child with learning/social disabilities to attend this school. It has changed our family in so many ways."

    "Our son started attending DRF school in second grade. Prior to DRF he was enrolled in a public school with accommodations. His exceptionality is speech and sensory processing disorder. Dreams are Free has quite literally changed our child from being frustrated and overwhelmed to a confident, happy and fulfilled child. The small class size with an individual approach, along with therapy on site (occupation and speech) has helped our son close the academic gap that has been problematic for years. I truly believe that the teachers, principal and therapists all believe and support my child to reach his highest potential. He has friends that accept him for who he is and love him for it and as a parent I cannot ask for anything better then that. He is now in 5th grade and is still continuing to thrive by DRF accommodating the stages of maturity and growth every year. DRF individualizes each child's approach to learning and sociability on a yearly basis. I have enjoyed seeing his growth and my husband and I thank God that we have this school to celebrate how special our son is along with all the children that currently attend DRF!"

    "We are sorry to hear you are not fully satisfied with the opportunities our school has to offer students on the spectrum. Our certified and ESE endorsed teachers are keenly aware of each child s mannerisms and special needs, including stimming, and do not penalize them for it. We strive to have constant communication with our families as we know that each child benefits from open and continuous contact from school and home. Fortunately, we have an open communication policy where families may call or email any teacher or the principal at any time, or request a conference. In addition, we always have communication through our daily agendas, Friday Email Messages and Friday Folders. Unfortunately, we have not heard of a complaint from a family, so we are unable to resolve your worry directly. I encourage you to reach out to our principal, Rebecca Shields, at (941) 366-4010 or rshields@dreamsarefree.org so we may alleviate your concern. We look forward to speaking with you."

    "This school does not understand stim behaviors whatsoever of the children on the Spectrum and assume the worst despite an otherwise happy child. No communication whatsoever. I am removing my child ASAP."

    "I am very disappointed with DAF. It is NOT a good school for children with special needs. Who has ears, let him hear."
