You helped me last year, around this time, with my son, Patrick – who is thriving by the way!!!  I hope your ears have been burning because I have been singing your praises and forwarding your website like crazy.  I so appreciate you and the work you do, how you support families in supporting their children’s unique learning styles.  I have got to get more of your cards!  As a massage therapist, I listen to a lot of clients tell me their frustrations… makes for easy referrals!
