"We received your report this week and want to thank you very much for the timeliness of getting it to us. Not only did we get it in a fraction of the time that our other two children’s reports took but we found it to be much easier to read and understand.
The accommodations mentioned in your report were explicit and achievable and provide us with much more confidence than the material we received from elsewhere.
We will have no hesitation in recommending your services to those we encounter in similar circumstances."
