Wishing you only the best!" ​From a Tichenor volunteer/intern "On behalf of the class of 2019 at CSULB, DPT program, we would like to thank Fasia and Karsti so much for taking your time to teach us what you know and continuing to inspire us as future therapists to be great clinicians just like you. Thank you!" "How fortunate we all are to have you as a colleague, friend, leader and clinician.

You keep the class going in a way that no one else can. We are so blessed to have met you and are forever grateful for your help. Thank you!!" To my PT, "Here's my footprint, so you will always remember the impact you had in my life, that you for having such patience and dedication to teaching me how to sit up, crawl and stand." ​ From the bottom of our hearts thank you for everything. Every time my daughter has learned a new gross motor skill my fears have lessened. Since she was diagnosed, my fear was that she would never walk. Now I know it's only a matter of time. Wish we could have finished the journey in your care but am thankful for what you have accomplished in such little time. Tichenor staff, We cannot begin to express how grateful we are for everything you've done for our daughter's overall development. You were there during good days and bad days and eased all of our concerns. You celebrated the little milestones and the big ones. Please don't stop showing the passion you do when you are with all the kids at Tichenor. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you! Thank you so much for helping my daughter achieve so much. She learned how to walk, start making sounds, & lots more. Please know that I appreciate you all very much! Your patience and dedication goes a long way & it is very much appreciated. May God continue to bless you all. Thanks again from the bottom of my heart! We will continue to see you guys, sorry! ​LOL Thank you for giving my son the ability to run, jump and strengthen muscles that he wasn't using.
