Dona helped us find the resources our son needed to help him succeed at school. She was able to identify his specific challenges and recommend the appropriate interventions. He has gone from disliking school to saying that his favorite subject is reading. Without her help our son could have struggled for years without the knowledge that something was holding him back. He now feels confident in school and has tools to help him manage challenging situations.
