The Difference You've Made In The Life Of My Child

I was grateful to receive this kind note of appreciation this week from a parent a few years after working with her son in therapy for an auditory processing disorder.

"Hi, Lynn,
I wanted to give you an update on _____ and how far he has come after working with you. 

As he entered junior high, I felt there was a piece of the puzzle still missing. After his Auditory Processing Disorder was diagnosed, and he had 2 years of intensive therapy with you, he seemed better with directions, school work, and life.  His grades in high school have far outpaced his grades in junior high.

Last fall he took the PSAT and scored very high; he is in the running for a National Merit Scholar seat.  He also took the ACT in Dec and scored a 35.  He plans on applying to very competitive schools and wants to study chemical engineering.  I feel that the APD therapy helped him realize his potential and he was able to prove to himself, peers, and teachers that he is smart.  LD’s do not define him.  Most importantly, _____  recognizes the difference the therapy made in his life.  Many times he was reluctant to go, but now, agrees that he needed help.  

He is also a rock star when playing Taboo.  My mother attributes it to the games you use to play with him.

Thank you for all you did to help _____  and exhibiting extreme patience when working with him (he remains VERY stubborn)!

Many thanks,
_____"
