Fawyza has been an amazing help not only to my son but for me. I have has run ins with schools and teachers on behalf of my son. He has difficulty staying motivated and on task with no support from his school, so I heard about the amazing work Fawzya has done for other kids facing the same problems and had to see if she could help him. She has been working with my son for over a month, she has giving me so much hope. My son listens and follows what she says and seems more motivated. Fawzya is giving him skills that has made him become more independent and want to be more successful. She is also supporting me by monitoring my son so I do not always have to be on him about his school work and other reminders, which takes a lot of stress off of us. I feel like I have someone that is on my child's side for once. I appreciate Fawzya's patience and seeing the best in my son.
Sincerely, Cara M. (parent)
