ONE PARENT’S COMMENTS AFTER WORKING WITH NINA: “I can’t begin to thank you. It’s as if you shattered the glass ceiling of my son’s IEP world. I’m sure there will be more but this was a huge step in the right direction. For the first time ever, I felt Robert [not real name] was actually looking out for Ben [not real name] not just trying to please mom…I was in awe of what you were able to accomplish with the team….You have restored the hope in my world and I thank you for that gift.”
