Our son Ben is a sweet, funny, happy, loving young man. Since early childhood he has struggled with ADHD, learning challenges and autism that was not diagnosed until age 17. With the support of wonderful and caring teachers and other support staff he graduated from high school on time.. He had a couple of jobs that he enjoyed very much and even took a class at MATC. Beginning in his early teens Ben began to speak with the angels and that has continued to today. Eventually Ben and his dad lived in a rental farm house and Ben tended his large garden growing vegetables that were then donated to Second Harvest food bank. Then began a three year period of increasing social isolation during which the angels became more vocal and angry. Ben began to retreat within himself and was not able to interact with others as he had previously. His behavior became irritable, angry and unpredictable. There were a few violent outbursts and numerous police calls. A period of multiple med trials and hospitalizations occurred. He would stabilize in the hospital but regress when he returned to his home environment. We were at our wits end . Patrick Sharp with Creative Solutions joined our team in the summer of 2020 and worked some magic. He was able to connect us with an adult family home and other social supports. Since October Ben has once again become the funny happy guy we once knew. He loves the family taking care of him, he has a job two days a week, and spends three afternoons a week with Achieve Abilities doing various social activities. He still talks to the angels some but is much more interactive. There have been no police calls and no hospitalizations. We cannot thank Patrick enough for his knowledge and skills in helping us navigate such a difficult situation.
I cannot thank you enough.
