    • My son Justin enrolled at Crossroads 20 years ago when it was in the Scotia/Glenville location. He is now enrolled in his senior yr college experience program at St. Rose. Independent and happy. I’m forever grateful for the teachers and staff at Crossroads and it’s ABA teaching that got him started to improve his life and end up where it is now.
