“High Functioning Family has proven to be a wonderful resource for families and our school! Margarita Daskalakis and Juarline Stavrinos are easy to speak to and very personable. They are extremely informative and well versed in Early Childhood. High Functioning family hosted workshops at the Growing Tree that provided strategies and tips for everyday frustrating situations that occur with our children. Parents were able to open up and share their own stories. It was an enriching learning experience!”
