“My daughter has been involved in the Special Gals group which is part of the CARD center at NSU under the guidance of Mallory [Schneider] Kojkowski, M.S. Ed for several years.  As a member of this group she has learned to socialization skills, participate in community outings and most importantly to have fun with friends.  She has been engaged in many different events including ice cream socials, game time with friends, and creating a community garden.  Her social skills have improved dramatically during these events and she will engage in a conversation regarding what she did which has helped her communication skills. As a parent, it gives me great joy in watching my daughter participate and enjoy being with peers. I would like to thank Mallory and the CARD center for their creation of this group as it has become so beneficial to my daughter's interpersonal skills across many different settings including home, school and work environments.”
