        Testimonials from our most recent SM in the School Conference from April 2016:

        "Excellent recommendations that are practical and able to be applied to our student! We can't wait to implement!"

        "Our team was struggling with how to develop a 504 and possibly an IEP for our 7th grader. Thank you for showing us how! We feel like we have a game plan and are ready to go!"

        "As a parent who has been struggling to find help, this is the first time I felt my instincts were correct and someone understood my child. IT all makes sense. Thank you for your expertise!"

        "As a patient of the SMart Center,  I continue to learn from you!  My daughter made more progress in 2 months with your program than she had in 2 years of past treatment! Thank you, Dr. E and your wonderful team. We would never be where we are without you!"
