“Heather has done an outstanding job helping our pre-K son build his social skills and make connections with peers. Whenever we touch base to discuss an issue or question, I am always impressed by how well she knows our son. I was also pleased with how well she worked with his teachers, and that they were happy to collaborate and adopt new approaches she’d suggested.”
“Thanks again for all you do! Not just with my child, but for all those children and confused, sometimes hopeless parents! You have given us the confidence to keep trying and the skills to become successful! – Father of a 5 year old diagnosed with ADHD and ASD
“I worked in tandem with Elizabeth to provide educational support for a child with Down Syndrome. I have Masters Degree in Education, a Masters Degree in Library Sciences, and was an early elementary teacher for over twenty years. In all my years of teaching, I have never witnessed an early intervention specialist at the caliber of Elizabeth. She has an extraordinary gift of engaging her student/client by knowing the right balance of academic work with behavioral mentoring. Elizabeth knows exactly when to push her student and when to pull back. The result is that Elizabeth is able to achieve outstanding results in both the student’s behavior and educational goals. The reason for this positive outcome is that her students trust her. Elizabeth extends herself to her student with her whole heart and the student feels her sincere intention. She’s just the best at what she does.” – Cathy Robinson, MA, Education
