The other day, in the form of a request to connect on LinkedIn, we received the following note about NESCA Director Dr. Ann Helmus from Bonnie Magoon Haley, the mother of a former client. We reprint here with her permission:
"Ann saved my son back in 2000, when he was entering 5th grade and still reading on a 1st-grade level. She was our 3rd neuro (psychologist), and finally someone told us it was dyslexia and to get OG (Orton-Gillingham, an effective, multi-sensory approach to the teaching of reading) for him. That's why I am a certified OG practitioner today. He graduated from Emerson College in 2014 and is now a Disney Imagineer! Thank you."
We're very grateful to Bonnie for having taken the time to write with such an inspirational reminder of the real-world impact our clinicians' work at NESCA can have.
