What Lauryn says about Madonna Learning Center "Madonna is like Disney World. As a therapist not only is it a great environment to provide the best care for my clients and their families, but there is so much support and positivity provided by the administration and other staff members. It is truly a unique place to be a part of. Another aspect that makes MLC so near and dear to my heart are the students. They are some of the sweetest and most loving kids. They bring a lot of spunk to our therapy sessions and their smiles always brighten my day."
