Thanks for following up, and for readily providing information when I first
inquired. Right now, we’re still sorting out timing and steps to be undertaken for
placement (with current school agreement) and hospital.
Many thanks for the service you provide.
Thank you for all your help and recommendations. We are trying to work with a psychologist and I’ve set up counseling at his present school. Thank you again for all your help. I cannot thank you enough for your honesty. God Bless. Keep up the good work.

Your statement about my son is on point. He acquainted himself with bad friends. He was averaging 85 one school term then dropped dramatically to a 59 the second term. Thank you so much.

Dear Sue Scheff,
Thank you so much. It is interesting to know that we are not alone. And although I wish that no one would have to go through what we are going through, it is nice to know that there are so many others that are having similar difficulties and can offer support.

Thank you so much and thank you for your efforts in helping other parents. God bless!
