About Nevada Education and Therapy Solutions
Our experience has shown us that all children are capable of learning to the best of their ability. As Dr. O. Ivar Lovaas said, “If they can’t learn the way we teach, we teach the way they learn.” Unfortunately, that does not always happen. If this has been your child’s experience, we can help!
