“DePaul has opened up a new world to our whole family. We can communicate with Jared— and him with us—in ways that we could not before. Knowing that he can get his thoughts and feelings across has given him a new confidence. We owe so much to DePaul and its caring staff. We are blessed to have DePaul in our lives.” -Julie, Jared’s Mother
