What People Are Saying about CSS

My son was 11 years old when we started seeing Susan and her therapists. We had worked hard with various OT and PT professionals from the time he was 4 years old to help him write legibly. It just didn't work, not matter how hard we tried or how much we practiced. We had one OT professional explain that his problems were so severe that he would never learn to write legibly and to focus 100 percent of our efforts on typing.
When we started with Susan and her group, the focus was immediately on building overall strength and the basics of writing. Every week we took home homework and I watched him get stronger and more confident in his abilities. Within months he had cursive that was legible and getting neater by the week.
We have homeschooled him for six years and he has grown and progressed beautifully. I wanted to try something different for his last year of middle school and high school but felt we couldn't move forward without the ability to write, take notes, etc. This year, after 18 months with Susan and her therapists, he has been accepted into a school with a rigorous college prep program and I am confident that he will succeed. I really don't believe that he would have been ready without the skills that he was taught by Susan and her therapists.

Susan, I just read your list serve post and just wanted to thank you for always jumping in and educating all of us on things that are so meaningful to our practice. You always have so much information to share and I appreciate what you have to say. I also enjoy reading your column in Advance and immediately turn to your page when I receive an issue in the mail. I have been meaning to e-mail you to tell you this but kept getting sidetracked so I am glad to have the opportunity right this minute to tell you how glad I am to know you and to learn from your wisdom.

Participants in Susan's latest Handwriting seminar in March 2007 shared what they enjoyed most about her presentation: "the lab work", "the practical, hands-on application", "the activities", "fun activities", "lots of great treatment ideas", "the pre-writing ideas for handwriting". The only "complaints" from all participants was that the seminar was not long enough!
--Healthcare professionals ranging from 2-26 years’ experience

Good use of activities for the participants to understand what a child is experiencing in gym class, etc.

Thank you for your honest, Susan.  It is very much appreciated.  I know it’s not easy telling parents things they would rather not hear.  The chart was very helpful for both my husband and myself.
We just talked to a friend who a kid with some needs and they actually use Dr. Weintraub too.  I couldn’t think of two better endorsements. We will make an appointment for her to be seen.   Anything we can do to help her we will try!
Thanks for being patient with my girls and us too.
