What advice would you give to a family who is on the fence about signing up for a learning assessment (or counseling/therapy)?

There is no risk in having a speech and language evaluation. If they are on track you've only spent an hour of time for peace of mind. If a delay is identified a plan can be made to fit the need(s).

What would you say to someone who is very anxious about learning problems in school?

We all learn in different ways. When something is harder to learn it it can make you a stronger person.

Why are you passionate about helping students with learning differences?

I struggled with my speech as a child and I feel like my struggles can be used as a motivational tool for someone else.
