She had a great unassuming style that made me feel comfortable and I learned a lot about myself through the testing process. The testing helped me understand why schoolwork has been so difficult for me and what I could about it to fix it.
I was worried about my son being tested, but she was kind and patient with us and that made a big difference. I appreciated the way she explained things to us in a way that made sense.
