It's so fun when I get to be a part of a kid's life over the years and see them grow into adults. I've worked with this individual on and off since he was 6 - and now he is 21!
I've seen him go from running away from sounding out a word to reading a novel. I've seen him go from throwing a pencil in frustration to taking deep breaths as he conquers writing an essay.
It's about breaking things down into bitesize steps, taking a deep breath, having some fun and learning that you can get through anything.
