The Reading Clinic is committed not just to helping our son study for the PSSA but, more importantly, the director and her staff are committed to helping my son understand how he learns and how to maximize his study skills. The service is commendable, flexible, and thorough.

As a new, single mom, The Reading Clinic gave me a great deal of educational, even emotional and spiritual guidance for my newly adopted son. The director is extremely knowledgeable & nurturing.

My grandson really likes you. He said that you tested him to see how “Smart” he was; I was glad to hear that because I wanted him to see this as a positive experience.
You are doing great work and I wish you all the best.
I learned so much about Dyslexia by attending your seminar. I feel better equipped to advocate for my daughter. Thank you for being patient with all of my questions.
--- F. De Luca
We are so grateful we found you. I felt so lost trying to figure out what was wrong with my son. Thank you for your patience and being a great listener as I vented and cried about all of the years and money that have been spent trying to figure out what was wrong. The fact that you attended the IEP meeting for my son is just one more reason why you are such a blessing to me and my family! We appreciate you and all of the time that you have invested in my son.

Help me find a Speaker
"I called several companies and got promises for information on speakers. GBS was the first company who delivered without a return phone call. I was impressed by the level of professionalism and the willingness they offered to help us in selecting a speaker who could fit our corporate needs. Turnaround time for answers and documents was never more than 24 hours."
