Tory and Chris

Tory did not know what to do about her son's difficulties at school. She knew Chris was smart, but each day the conflicts were getting worse and her relationship with the school was becoming adversarial.

The worst part was "Chris was not getting the help he needed," explained Tory. After an evaluation revealed that Chris was struggling with Aspergers and ADHD, a doctor referred Tory to Raising Special Kids for help in getting an appropriate education program in place for her son.

Through Raising Special Kids, Tory learned how to use effective advocacy techniques and was able to work with the school in developing an individualized learning program for Chris that has turned school into a positive experience.
