“When I started high school, I was always looking down at the ground, and I didn’t even notice the people around me, much less what they were thinking.

Syndi helped me to learn how to make friends by showing interest in them. How to think less about things and more about people. There are countless things that I’ve learned from three years in her social group. 

I also learned how to read nonverbal cues, which I never understood. I’ve been able, as a result, to become independent and graduate from college with a BS in Physics. I am now in graduate school. “

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Syndi for the past several years in a school environment.  She brings so much experience and knowledge while helping support students with an autism spectrum diagnosis and other disabilities.  She truly enjoys working with children and makes a difference in their lives as they stride towards independence and social inclusion. 

She is an involved team member between families, students, and teachers. Syndi has provided a wealth of knowledge and strategies for me working with special needs students. 

I highly recommend Syndi for any behavioral and social needs you may have with students of any age or ability.  She is truly dedicated to making a difference in peoples’ lives!”

“For the past 11 years, I have been blessed to come to know Syndi Ecker in both personal and professional capacities. As a 49-year-old woman, if I were challenged to state the top 10 names of persons who have most positively affected my life, Syndi would undeniably make the list.

Syndi simply embodies integrity. She is honest, kind, gracious and conscientious, always showing sincere interest in others and striving to improve herself at every opportunity. She has developed an incredible set of skills, which she uses to benefit others. Syndi is intuitive and models resiliency and introspection, which, combined with her high energy, encourages a contagious enthusiasm for life.

What I love the most about Syndi is that she never runs from a challenge, but instead heads straight for it.


Special Education Teacher & Parent

"I have worked with Syndi Ecker for four years. When I first met with Syndi, I was on academic probation from the previous quarter and was struggling through my classes at Cal Poly. Syndi worked with me to quickly change my habits and turn my academic career around.

She taught me how to manage my time, prioritize my activities, study effectively, and succeed in college. She focused heavily on developing my organizational skills and instilling in me effective study habits.

Syndi is warm, welcoming, and a pleasure to work with. Even so, she holds her students accountable and expects them to take responsibility for their actions. Syndi has not only helped me thrive in college, she taught me the skills to succeed as an adult in the working world. "
