What are people saying about our work together?
I am so glad we hired Louise when we did. We began going to Louise when my daughter was in 2nd grade and really struggling to read. Reading at home was fraught with tears and stress. Since then, Louise has given her the reading support and interventions she needs and helped guide us through the process to get her an IEP. For the past couple of years, Louise has supported her, advocated for her, and has helped my daughter become a more confident and fluent reader who can now enjoy the pleasure of reading.
