Eight years ago my son, Nicholas, was in elementary school and struggling with reading and writing. His teachers always commented to me that, “there was something there” preventing him from progressing. Verbally, at 10-years-old, he scored at the level of a 20-year-old and he was always very willing to read but it was just one word at a time. Then we were referred to Dr. O’Connor.
Recently, Nicholas graduated from Niagara Wheatfield High School. In the beginning of his senior year, he was ranked 40 out of 302 students! He is a member of the National Honor Society, received four scholarships and a Certificate of Excellence/Outstanding Student from BOCES. He was accepted at every college to which he applied and will be attending Paul Smith College in the Adirondacks for Environmental/Wildlife Science.
I share this with you because Dr. O’Connor changed his life! He went from a struggling elementary school student to a successful and exceling high school student.
Occasionally, Nicholas will explain to someone how I put him in a closet and he stared at a green light. It definitely raises some eyebrows, but what a difference it has made!
We can’t thank Dr. O’Connor enough for providing your services. We are extremely grateful.
