What advice would you give to a family who is on the fence about signing up for a learning assessment?

A learning assessment can help families identify a roadmap for their child's academic journey. Whether it's validating their current concerns or learning something new about their cognitive functioning, many people appreciate learning about how their mind works because it allows them to leverage their strengths while also working on shoring up their weaknesses.

What gets you excited about Parallel?

I am passionate about increasing access to quality treatment and assessment options. Parallel has developed an innovative way to help families who are seeking educational services. Parallel truly cares about helping families who are looking for answers and solutions to their child's academic difficulties.
