    I highly recommend TLC! My son's processing speed improved, he's able to complete his schoolwork more independently, and his confidence in his abilities has increased. He says, "Everything is just easier after TLC!" I love the focus on fixing the child's issues, rather than merely teach them to cope. All of the staff is amazing-- caring, patient, & positive. My son's clinician challenged him without pushing him to frustration. A worthwhile investment in my child's future!

    I can't say enough about this place and all the clinicians who work there! It's been a blessing in my family's life, especially my 13 year old son's life. He is about 4 years behind in all academic areas and he's been here for a couple months. He has already grown 1 to almost 2 grade levels in reading. Amazing! His confidence is improving, his self esteem is being boosted and there are more smiles on his face. We look forward to all the growth he'll make.

    We were most impressed by the one on one attention that was given to our daughter and the high commitment level to her success, not just academically but as a developing individual. Our daughter's self esteem was bolstered by her interaction with TLC's caring staff as well as the successes she experienced there.

    Can't say enough good things about the team at TLC. My daughter has a challenging central processing disorder and went through multiple rounds of evaluation and testing by a variety of specialist. Happily, we were eventually referred to Maria Bagby and her team. After a year of pretty intense work, my daughters ability to focus, work independently and self confidence have all improved tremendously. I recommend them without hesitation.

    Our daughter enjoyed her experience over the summer with TLC and she seemed to mature and thrive, becoming more relaxed and attentive. The mode of the center is pretty hectic in the summertime with kids and adults coming and going at a pretty rapid place, but they seem to keep things moving fairly smoothly. The billing aspect could be a little more user friendly - I think they are using a new system and needed to work out some "bugs" - I'm sure it's much smoother now. We really liked working with the team and our daughter felt loved and important. The cost is not for the faint of heart - I wish it was more affordable so that we could do more sessions, but along with school tuition, it is not doable most of the time.

    My son Holden struggled in first & early part of second grade. Reading was a real challenge, he hated going to school and no-one could tell us why he was struggling. We contacted Maria at the Therapeutic Literacy Center. They diagnosed him with APD after one afternoon and then set up a treatment plan to improve his reading and his self confidence. While I wasn't a big fan of the drive, Holden loved going to therapy. He always felt comfortable and loved working with Lidia. Fast forward through the summer and we are now in third grade. Reading is still a little bit of a challenge, but light year's ahead of last year. He's now more middle of the pack for reading in his class. For someone who was reading close to a Kindergarten level, this is a huge improvement. Plus, Holden likes to go to school again, does karate and has more self confidence, and we owe all of this to TLC. Thanks for everything. Chris & Maura Dulski

    My son spent nine months in the program at TLC. I can't say enough wonderful things about the services we received. When he began, he was below grade level in most subjects, very discouraged and struggling. I had already engage tutors, occupational therapists, and IEP program at the school and nothing would help him. Now he is florist thing in middle school and I can only attribute much of the success he has had to TLC. Thank you TLC for helping my son acquire a love of learning.

    Our experience at TLC has been all that we could have hoped for! Our daughter just had a 4.0 - all A's - quarter in middle school and is so much more confident, trying hard, and is being asked for help on school work by her friends! Contrast that with her pre-TLC discouragement, feelings of inferiority, and adamant reluctance to spell or write anything, and you can imagine how grateful and fortunate we feel to have found TLC!

    TLC was a lifesaver for our entire family. My 10 year old daughter was struggling with organizing her school work, following through on teacher instructions and comprehending 5th grade books. After an extensive evaluation (which they actually made fun for her), Maria and her team sat down with us to explain test results. My daughter met with skilled & qualified instructors daily where they applied physical exercises, mental and memory lessons to increase her audio processing speed at their office. Outside of office she was given headphones to listen to music from a website on her ipad. The classical music has sophisticated technology to help her focus. After several months, she was able to comprehend grade level books, over come organizational issues and follow through on school and home responsibilities. TLC accomplished the goal to catch her up academically but also gave her new found confidence which was invaluable for her and our family!

    We were fortunate enough to happen upon this wonderful school when our daughter was having severe difficulties reading and keeping up in school. She was beyond frustrated and her self esteem was suffering, so we enrolled her at first for a few hours each day before school. After doing that for 6 months and seeing steady improvement, we decided to enroll her full time for the past 2 years. What a complete turn around it's been. Her self esteem is back, her love for learning is back, and she now has some great skills for helping her through the remainder of her school journey. This is truly a one of a kind program that we cannot recommend highly enough. If you have a child who's struggling in school, this is the place to be to help them. Maria, and the entire staff at TLC, we will miss you greatly and are forever in your gratitude.
