Testimonial

  • I brought my son in after a few years of watching him struggle in school and lose self confidence. We had tried all different things at school and he was getting extra help in all subjects. My son was referred to see an occupational therapist who noticed that it could be a vision issue. I was recommended to this office and after his consult we began therapy. I can't express how thankful we are for the therapy. Within weeks of starting we saw a difference and I have a son who is now successful in school (made the honor roll) and has gained his self confidence. The difference in his mood and attitude is unbelievable, he has become more pleasant to be around. - LS
