The Very Real Impact of DyslexiaHelp
 
"I contacted your organization last February about my son and his difficulties in school. My husband and I suspected a problem but couldn't get the school to listen. You [Dr. Pierson] referred me to Dr. Ryan in Grand Rapids and we just finished up our assessments and my son is severely dyslexic. While saddened about this I am so thankful I took your advice and trusted my gut and got him tested. We are looking forward to getting on track this school year."
