Dana found the perfect school for our son, Eric. As with all parents of a child with learning differences, we all have different stories to tell about the experiences we have gone through and many times they are quite painful to share. It was immediately clear that Dana understood what we had been through and knew what to do.
Eric was 13, almost 14, when we found Dana. She politely explained that we first needed a proper diagnosis and guided us to the right testing centers.
We happen to live in England and none of the professionals we had dealt with, and there were a lot, told us about all of the tests that were available to help us find out what Eric’s learning issues were. After 22 hours of testing and follow up meetings with each of the professionals, we had a diagnosis that finally made some sense.
We needed to find a boarding school in the New England area, by the start of the following school year, and our search was commencing in the late spring upon completion of formal testing. Dana arranged for us to see 5 boarding schools, offering varying degrees of learning support. As Eric’s diagnosis became clearer and clearer to us, we were immediately able to realize which school was the perfect fit.
Eric just started school this past September. We have a good feeling about our journey being on the right track now, thanks to Dana’s help and expertise. She was with us every step of the way and we could not have done this without her.
