Parent of 8 year old student:
"Helen was absolutely amazing in helping our little boy get the services he so desperately needs. We will be forever grateful for everything Helen has done for us. Our son had been struggling with reading since kindergarten. My husband and I had approached his school several times asking for appropriate services but we were always denied. When we met Helen she told us about all the necessary steps that need to be taken and she willingly attended our son’s CSE meeting with us. During the meeting, my husband and I were so impressed with Helen’s vast knowledge regarding dyslexia and it’s subtypes and how it affects learning and student’s performance on every level. We admired her ability to present facts and statistics in a concise and clear way. She pointed out the neurological differences with dyslexia. We wholeheartedly recommend Helen to all parents!! She is the person you want in your corner advocating for your child’s rights. If you are feeling intimidated and overwhelmed by the CSE process, and have been denied services, having an advocate such as Helen will change your experience entirely. Thank you so much Helen!!!!"
Parent of a 10 year old student:
"Helen Roussel was extremely effective in communicating to our school district the neurological challenges that dyslexic students face. She eloquently explained the appropriate execution of specific reading programs based on a dyslexic student’s subtypes. We feel that Helen was instrumental in securing an appropriate educational plan for our son."
Parent of a 12 year old student:
"Reading is at the center of learning and Helen is well versed in what works for the dyslexic student and was able to help me secure an Orton Gillingham tutor to help my daughter. She attended a meeting with P.P.S. to help convince them the need for tutoring. Helen knows ignoring dyslexia can and does lead to high school drop outs, failure to set life goals and even jail. Helen is a warrior for the dyslexic student advocating for children who don’t know why they aren’t like the other students."
Parent of an 9 year old student:
"Helen gave me the confidence I needed to bring up such topics of Dyslexia in our school systems . She gladly attended a meeting with myself and the Administrators in my school district. She help push them in the right direction in getting our teachers trained to a higher standard for our children. Her approach was both professional and persuasive. As a result our school district is proactively involved in getting teachers trained to a higher standard. Thank you Helen for being an advocate to help push our districts in the right direction."
Parent of a 8 year old student:
"Helen is a wealth of information about parenting a child with dyslexia, finding ways to help them, and identifying the shortcomings in our local school systems approach to teaching children with dyslexia. She attended a meeting with me and administrators and introduced the method of Orton-Gillingham reading in the meeting, and how easily and inexpensively teachers can be trained. She has helped give me confidence to continue advocating for my son. We have a long way to go in the fight for free appropriate education for children with learning disabilities and dyslexia. Helen is a valuable part of the community that is working on addressing this problem in our local schools."
