Working with Help Me Grow Marin was an amazing experience during my son’s school year. Susanne’s immense knowledge and understanding of special education helped my son and my family to navigate every step and to find a unique program that was perfect and served his needs. Susanne took time to help me understand and guide me through the school district’s process over several months. She always made time to answer my many questions and I felt well prepared when speaking with the school district because of her assistance. I would not have been able to help my son and accomplish this without the assistance from Help Me Grow Marin. This program and their staff are an amazing and a necessary asset for any parent that wants to help their child succeed at any age.
