A Word From Our Clients...

Dear Susan,

After watching my daughter struggle for the past few years it is finally so wonderful to see her making progress in the right directions.  I can't believe I have finally found someone who is so knowledgeable about my child's complex mix of issues including sensory integration dysfunction, ADHD, emotional regulation, and motor processing delays.  Your services go way beyond the typical occupation therapy sessions to include a framework which includes teaching me skills so I can best help my daughter thrive.  From a forever grateful parent.
