A Mother Talks… How Study Wizards Helped Her Autistic Child

Study Wizards dedicated professionals have made a tremendous difference for my son, who has autism. Study Wizards has gone the extra mile to customize and individualize an effective tutoring program for him, and he has made strong improvements. The staff is a pleasure to work with, and I appreciate their great efforts to make tutoring affordable, and scheduling flexible, for us.

In particular, Dr. Rosalie Toren, Study Wizards Team Psychologist, has been a skillful and vigorous advocate to provide my son what would work best for him. Not only did she develop an effective tutoring program for him, but also she proactively sought the services that he needed: After initially testing him, Dr. Toren tutored my son directly for a number of months. And she worked with me to find a school that would work well with him. Dr. Toren is straightforward and easy to talk with; and she understood not only my son’s personal challenges, but also the inherent challenges of working within the educational system.

In addition, Dr. Toren and the Study Wizards staff worked hard to match the right, permanent tutor for my son. Sarah Steinbach is very knowledgeable and experienced in working with children who have autism. Her motivational techniques really work – and my son’s math skills have improved immensely. I look forward to Sarah continuing to work with him, and I appreciate the commitment
Study Wizards provides us.
