Megan, thank you for coming and presenting very useful and informative information. We loved your fun-filled spirit, your heart on the matter, and enthusiasm. Presentation was insightful and the hands-on activities let us experience what kids with unique skills experience and their frustrations. Very eye opening! May the Lord continue to lead and guide you and your business.
Megan is passionate about working with autistic children and that enthusiasm for these children really shined all through her presentation. She was extremely knowledgeable and open to questions, provided hands on activities for teachers to participate in, and then provided valuable feedback and resources for all to implement immediately in their classrooms. I received many positive comments on Monday and Tuesday from the teachers about how informative the training was and how much they enjoyed it.
TMP has been a breath of fresh air! Their knowledge and approach to ABA is amazing and they are all willing to take the time to talk to me about my child’s day. I discuss things I see and my concerns I may have about my child and they are readily willing to include that into my child’s plan and work on any issues as they arise. The staff seems fully engaged and my child absolutely loves attending! He is thriving in this environment and I am confident they will prepare him to the best of their ability on the transition to Kindergarten in the fall. I am extremely pleased with TMP and the ABA services they provide!

My son was the very first client at The Missing Peace. I had the privilege of knowing both of the owners, Beth Worman and Megan Haupert, for well over a year before they opened their center. I had the benefit of knowing them both professionally, and feel blessed that they have grown to be friends as well as my son's therapists.
My son began therapy with Megan a few months after his 3rd birthday. Under her oversight, with the help of a great team of therapists, he has gone from being almost non-verbal and socially unaware and uninterested in others, to a talkative, energetic, loving little boy who will talk to almost anyone and loves to play games with his friends. This fall he will enter Kindergarten with neuro-typical peers, supported in the transition by Megan and Beth's staff. I know that he will be successful because I have seen first-hand how they gear everything they do to prepare our kids for success. They see what he CAN do, and build from there to challenge him and help him progress even more.
One of my son's favorite places in this world is The Missing Peace, which he lovingly called "Ms. Megan's house" for the first several months. Because to him, it felt like a home...and that was because Beth and Megan intentionally create an environment that makes you feel comfortable, at-ease and confident that your child will be loved and cared for while they are receiving vital treatment to help them reach their potential. For those of us with children on the spectrum, it is literally a peace that is difficult to find as we navigate our new normal.
Their dedication to our children comes from the sincerest place in their hearts and it is why they literally celebrate our milestones with us. Megan attended my son's pre-school graduation last Spring, because she is just as invested and proud of his success as we are. Beth and her team work tirelessly to bring special celebrations to The Missing Peace, including organizing a family day at the zoo, where our kids were supported by their therapists so they could enjoy a "typical" day out in our community. They continually go above and beyond to support our kids, both in and out of treatment.
I cannot say enough good things about both of these ladies and The Missing Peace. They have literally been a game-changer for my son and for our family. If you are on the short list of clients at The Missing Peace than you have the best advocates and therapists on your child's team to help your child reach their full potential.

Words cannot express my gratitude to the Missing Peace for your assistance to me and for your care, education, and encouragement for my son.
My son was diagnosed with severe autism at 3. He was put in the public education system with scheduled occupational and speech therapy. He was in a classroom ranging from 2 to 23 students. The teachers and aides knew my son, but were never really able to just focus on my son and his needs. We struggled with poor communication and, due to lack of cooperation from the school system, there were many days he didn’t eat lunch. Or, because of behaviors so often found in children with autism, he would be isolated from the other children during lunch time. I often felt like we were all just going through the motions and nothing was ever going to change or truly help my son. In four years, my son had made very little improvement and, at the age of seven, he was still mostly nonverbal and not potty trained.
The Missing Peace has truly been a God send to my family! In a very short amount of time, my son is becoming potty trained and more verbal. He is more compliant with behaviors and seems more interested in what is going on around him. The therapists at the Missing Peace are absolutely amazing! They are all very caring and compassionate people. They work one on one with my son and truly focus on him and his needs. He is able to eat what he likes now and have hot meals thanks to the therapist helping him heat his lunch up. Also, instead of isolating him during meal time, the therapists work with him to learn which boundaries not to cross. I receive almost constant communication and feedback from the therapists. I have never felt this comfortable leaving my son with anyone before. They treat my son as he is one of their own family members and he truly loves each of them. I can see daily his enthusiasm to be a part of the Missing Peace. I have never seen my son so happy and comfortable in an environment that wasn’t his home.
The Missing Peace has gone above and beyond what I had come to expect from therapy and education for my son. I am very grateful for this opportunity for my son and, for the first time in a very long time, I have hope again for my son. I would recommend the Missing Peace to anyone who has struggled with the challenges of therapy and education for their child with autism.
