My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for The New Community School, Richmond, VA, USA
Although our son had dyslexia and ADHD we were incredulous that no matter how much he failed in the public schools, he qualified for no special services. After years of failing, being frustrated and detached from the mainstream he was labeled a behavior problem. I knew this boy was no behavior problem but genuinely fearful of being in a classroom where he had become regarded as an SOL liability. He was loosing his sense of anything positive in his life when we turned to TNCS. Writing that first check took my breath away..it was a huge change for us. But within only weeks, I had my child back. He was excited about his life! His curiosity, vigor and motivation re emerged. And he was learning again. When people ask me how in the world I can afford this I tell them I could not afford not to...it's not just about the education. I've bought his childhood back.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
every way but especially in the look in my child's eyes.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
provide training sessions to parents on dyslexia.
