What parents are saying about working with Kelly:
From parents of former students
"Kelly meets children where they are -- wherever they are -- and brings them to a higher level through her uncanny ability to connect. She worked with my child for four years, and in that time, my child grew from a generally low level of social awareness and communication to a level essentially on par with her peers. That kind of growth can be difficult to facilitate in a public school setting. Kelly was able to achieve such remarkable progress by consistently seeking new ways to connect, frequently going above and beyond services specified in my child's educational plan. Kelly loves what she does, she's good at it, and she gets results."
"My daughters learning has been deep and impressive this year and working with Kelly has played a significant role in this. She has always kept the door for communication open, been responsive, professional and yet, perhaps most importantly, really seems to care about my daughter. Kelly is a team player and makes sure she gets the whole picture, her work with my daughter has been highly effective."
"My son's social anxiety keeps him from warming up to new people. This was never the case with Kelly. She met him where he was and he knew it. Though his IEP was initially only for speech, Kelly went above and beyond and worked in other language supports as well. We had a partnership that focused on the best interests and development of my child. She really knew my child and his difficulties and was always willing to do what was best for him. "
"Kelly has been a great advocate for my child. She is always willing to discuss his progress and she is full of suggestions and ideas that have proven to be beneficial to him. The social skills group that she ran has tremendously helped him in several social situations. His ability to verbalize his frustrations and concerns has improved and his self esteem has also improved as a result of having a better ability to communicate his feelings. Kelly has been amazing!"
