Testimonials

I have been worried about my child’s progress since she was in fifth grade. She has always had challenges with reading and has not read on grade level for some time. I often thought about changing schools, but I didn’t want her to have to make all new friends. Receiving tutoring services in our home through Child and Family Solutions helped her to get the attention she needed and the privacy she deserved.
