“At the age of 7, my son had not yet spoken his first word, then we met Mona. Jonathan began relating to the animals in a way that I have never seen him relate to people. Once Mona started bringing the animals to work with Jonathan, he had a reason to communicate! His first words came quickly after - “It’s just you and me Rascal,” which was one of Mona’s rabbits. After 17 years of working with Mona, he still asks every week if it is time to go see her.”

"My daughter transitioned immediately without hesitation to Mona's llamas, alpacas, dogs, rabbits and ducks, feeding and interacting with them; and then, at the end of each session, feeding herself (a difficult endeavor) without being prompted, and doing so as naturally as she witnessed the animals eating food from her."
