teen girlAbout people’s success learning new behaviors:

“I like getting my nails done by staff. I like having my own room and it’s decorated in pink and white. I’m learning how to do my own laundry. I like the staff; they are helpful. I get to see my parents on the weekends and go on other trips when I stay at my house. I do the dishes and got to go to Great Wolf Lodge in Williamsburg for vacation. I’m going to a concert and I’m excited because I’ll get a new outfit and get a haircut.”
