When my son was little he had speech issues. He started talking very late and he was impossible to understand. In first grade his teacher made a HUGE deal about his speech. She was this “perfect” teacher and has a reputation for only wanting “perfect” students. She scared us half to death. She insisted that his speech was going to hold him back academically, and said that he needed help with reading. He started receiving extra help at school and I started looking into tutors. I tried the Sullivan Learning Center and frankly was not that impressed. I wish that I had seen Score Reading Tutors they would have been perfect. Score Learning Centers can help your child succeed academically. There are times when a child needs just that little extra help to boost his confidence. Score could be that perfect place.
I was relived when after a couple sessions the tutor didn’t really see a problem. CAL understood what he was reading even if you couldn’t understand him. Finally, someone recommended that we have his speech tested at Emerson in Boston. We spent a fortune and had him tested. They assured us that his issues were NOT that drastic, and with weekly speech therapy he would be fine. Well he is now in fifth grade. He is an advanced math class, his reading comprehension is better than mine.
If I had a nickel for every time someone has said to me “your son is really smart”. They just assume that because he has a speech issue that he has academic issues.
I will definitely keep Score Learning Center in mind for the future. You never know when your situation can change.
