Opinion & Essays - Dec, 1994 Issue 

*Letters*

Dear Linda: I'm glad...I could someday write this letter about my son. This is definitely a milestone worth reflecting on. ..... experienced 10 years of failure in three different public school systems. I received him as an older adopted child and shared five of those painful years with him.... You obviously listened carefully during the interviews with ..... and me. Your reasons for selecting the schools you recommended reiterated his needs well. The school I chose from your advice has done a thorough job of addressing those needs. ..... is feeling good about school and himself for the first time since I've known him. His learning problems still make school more difficult and frustrating for him than for most students. The difference is that now he is committed to do what it takes to compensate. He believes in himself succeeding and his performance validates that belief. I suspect your work brings you much satisfaction from the gratitude of people like ..... and myself and those in the schools you serve. 
- Thank you; a parent from the northwest.
