Mostly I’m thankful to Cathy Dick, for helping me a lot with previous decision making and daily planning. She has helped me put into practice a mind-set to be something that I wish to accomplish by the end of each day to the end of the year– focus on that, and make sure I do things in terms of preparing myself mentally and physically before I start. She has a lot of great resources that she shares freely too. You can trust her to do what she says she’ll do.

When we were first referred to Mrs. Cathy Dick at One Degree Forward, my first question was, “Is she a doctor?” If the answer had been yes I think I would have refused. Instead the answer was like a breath of fresh air.

I feel fortunate enough to have participated in one of Cathy’s Teleclasses and purchased her ADD Parental Strategies program. I really needed my husband to understand more about ADD so we could help our son better. The program dove into who we are as people and showed us the importance of communication between us in order to communicate more effectively with our son. I’d recommend this program to everyone, whether they have ADD kids or not. It’s a real eye opener! Thanks.
