I have finished reviewing the Parent Guide and it is nothing short of excellent. As a parent with my child currently in Grade 8 and wondering about Grade 9, I learned a lot about what to expect in the intermediate grades, what the focus should be (peer relationships, etc) and what needs to be done to achieve success in high school.”

“While reading this guide, I constantly thought about what an excellent and comprehensive resource this is! I would recommend the guide as essential reading for all Speech-Language Pathologists who work with children – for preschool clinicians to help them understand the educational system, and for consultants who are newly hired to school board positions.”
