Our son, Tommy, has autism. It is a challenge in life that is monumental; not only for the child, but for his family.
There are mountains that must be climbed, and canyons crossed. Our family has been so lucky to have so many wonderful people in our corner as we have faced this arduous journey. Tommy has been a student at DDI since he was four and a half years old. My husband and I entrust our son to the care of these wonderful professionals, and I have no doubt that they strive for excellence. Our son, Tommy, has autism. That has been very hard to say, but DDI has made our journey a little easier to travel. ~Elizabeth Klonowski

Office Depot has been servicing DDI for over 5 years. The product offerings we provide are both necessary and essential to run everyday operations.
The management and purchasing staff has been influential in instructing the end users throughout the organization on utilizing our website. We look forward to continuing our relationship with DDI as well as providing them with the services they need. ~Joseph Bianco Vertical Market Manager | Office Depot, Inc.
"Everyone involved over in the Plainview Day Hab did an incredible job tending to every possible problem that might arise for her, and was prepared and ready to help Lauren feel safe and secure."
The day hab coordinator, Michelle and the manager, Dora, go above and beyond in their goal to treat each and every individual coming there with respect and consideration of their particular needs. It has been a very good transition for my daughter and I know that could not have been accomplished without the constant consideration of the whole team working there. ~The Valentino Family
I had an interaction with a cashier at the Dollar Tree that I wanted to share with you. I was wearing my DDI shirt land the cashier at the store smiled and stated that she used to work at Estee Lauder.
She stated that she had the pleasure of working with several individuals from DDI and that they were some of the most positive and hardest working individuals she has ever met. She went on to say that she worked with an individual named Tommy and that he was great. She was very proud of him and was even aware that he worked at Walgreens. She said we do great work here and that this a great agency. Andre Pierre, Program Manager
