Meet Marlon

Marlon is a young boy who has made remarkable progress since being diagnosed with aut ism three years ago. Working together, the Siskin's Center for Developmental Pediatrics and the Early Learning Center helped Marlon overcome many challenges and provided the Parks family with  hope for Marlon's future. Marlon began to let people in. He began to respond to therapy and began making tremendous progress at home. Working with Marlon and his family, therapists began unlocking his personality and potential.
