Review for Parents Education Network, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

PEN was lifesaving for both our son and our family. After our son received his diagnosis of dyslexia, I did not know how to begin navigating the countless issues involved. These included understanding the diagnosis and its ramifications, working with teachers and schools, homework, the psychological effects for our son and our family, tutors, accommodations (how to request and receive them), the law, testing, teaching advocacy to our son and advocating to the larger community, future potential good school matches and so many more. PEN offered a support system of dedicated, kind and thoughtful women who in the process of learning about learning disabilities and advocating for their children decided to form a nonprofit dedicated to sharing their experience and expertise. I found PEN when our son was 6. He is now 20. He is currently attending and thriving at a university he never would have been accepted or gone to without all we learned from PEN. I cannot say enough good things about this organization to adequately express my thanks. PEN allowed our son and countless others to feel good about themselves, to celebrate their learning issues and to be able to achieve what they are capable of. These are not small or temporary skills and lessons. They sre truly life changing.
