I trust Alexandra. I don’t say that easily. Over the years I have worked with many professionals who have helped with our son’s learning issues. She stands out.
Alexandra was never about selling me on any one program. She was obviously passionate about finding the best and most accessible neuroplastic techniques to help our son. When we decided to enroll him in the Arrowsmith program, where she was the manager, she wanted to ensure he would be ready to get the most out of it when he did attend. She therefore referred us to a practitioner who implemented a different technique near where we lived in California to help prepare our son for his work at the Arrowsmith program in Vancouver. The suggestion was spot-on. My son came back from school afterwards saying, “Mom, I could follow the teacher much better and take notes more easily!” He was thrilled and we were thrilled.
Because we would have to move our son far away, she was willing to give up the enrollment at her center to suggest an Arrowsmith program that was closer to our home. However, after my husband and I looked into that program, we decided to send our son to Alexandra’s more distant campus because Alexandra seemed more focused on what was best for our son.
Alexandra did not ask me to write this statement. I offered to do so after I learned about her consulting business.
