  • The patience, support and genuine concern that the entire staff at SFL renders speaks to their desire to ensure that each child gets the tools and skills they need to be successful. SFL has made a profound impact on my daughter’s attitude toward her learning experience. She gets excited just knowing she is meeting with her clinicians.

  • We give our therapist most of the credit for getting my daughter—with multiple and severe learning disabilities—the ability to read. Phyllis has also been more than a resource for us along the way; she has held our hand and helped us manage a very complex situation. Without her knowledge of school systems and understanding of our needs, I think we would still be lost.

  • I really can’t say enough positive things about SFL. My daughter has been seeing an educational specialist there for several years for help with her dyslexia, and it has had an amazing impact on both my daughter, and our entire family. She has dramatically improved in both her academic performance, confidence, and attitude towards areas of academic challenge.
