Success Stories

After transitioning from in-home therapy to half-day therapy in the Columbus center, Braxton has expanded his repertoire of functional life skills by learning to recycle and shop for items at the grocery store. “His family was afraid to take him out into the community because they weren’t really sure what he would do,” said BCBA Jen Riddle. “But because we are taking him out, they feel more comfortable with it. We expanded horizons to help them expand horizons.”


 Meet Megan Miller

I have a one year old little girl named Kessler. I think she is the Bee’s Knees! I am enjoying watching every moment of her life. We also have a Bichon Frise named Malice. In my spare time I like to spend time with family. I also enjoy a good walk/run.
What staff say about her:
She always has a sweet smile regardless of the situation she’s in. She genuinely cares about the kids she works with and communicates well with staff. We’re glad to have Megan as a member of our Cornerstone Staff!
