Review for Neuhaus Education Center, Bellaire, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My first experience with Neuhaus was in 1999 when I went to a parent information class held at The Center. I was experiencing frustration in my son's educational development and someone recommended that I speak with the Parent Resource Center. Having no idea what lay ahead of me, I was guided by the most helpful people who navigated me through the school ARD process. Not only was I able to get my child tested and identified as dyslexic, but I began a journey that changed my life. As there were no CALTs in my area of Houston at the time I was faced with a decision; drive into Houston every day for him to receive therapy, or for me to return to the classroom and get the skills needed to help him myself. I chose the second. My plan was just to help my son, but I knew two days into The Basic Language Skills Program that my life was changed forever. I could see how their program could help so many children. I decided to enroll in the Dyslexia Specialist Preparation Program and become a CALT. It was the best thing I ever did. Here I am in 2012, President of The Houston Branch of the International Dyslexia Association, I meet people from all over the country who wish they had a program like Neuhaus in their backyard. Not just because they are the gold standard for teaching children with dyslexia, but because of the personal service they give everyone that enters their door. You just have to look at their staff to realize that they are committed to what they do. I know I am just one of many people who are forever changed by the programs and staff at Neuhaus. I will always be forever grateful.
