“Dr. Garforth’s techniques really helped me learn to communicate with my stepdaughter when she first moved in with us from a place without structure. I felt like no matter what I said she wasn’t listening to me but it turned out she was listening, she just wasn’t retaining the information because she worked better with visual cues than verbal. Dr. Kathryn’s helpful tips of using a list and writing things down helped make a huge difference in our daily routines and the beginning of our new mother-daughter relationship.”

Sherri (Mother of an individual with Dyslexia)

“We didn’t know where to turn. I was pretty positive my daughter had dyslexia…she was working long and hard and the process was slow and frustrating. Dr. Garforth was there for us with patience, kindness, wisdom, and understanding. She steered us in the right direction toward some helpful solutions. We are thankful for her empathy and direct, but soft – guidance, and truth. Thank you, Dr. Garforth, you were an answer to our prayers.”

Susanna Bentley (Mother of an Individual on the Autism Spectrum)

For years, my son struggled to write a single, complete sentence. Now, he’s writing multi-paragraph at a time! This is a miracle. thank you for your great work and coaching!

Mariah (Individual with Dyslexia)

“Dr. Kathryn helped me find a way to understand what I was going through. I was struggling in school trying to keep up, I would stay up till 1 in the morning and still handed stuff late which caused much anxiety. My mother and I met up with Dr. Garforth to help us figure out what was going on and pointed us in the direction of getting me tested to get an official report done to help me out at school and deal with dyslexia and slow processing. While meeting with Dr. Garforth, she made me comfortable and at ease while making my feelings and struggles feel valid. Since meeting with her, my life has made a 180-degree change, and I am able to understand myself and how I work and allow others to understand as well.”

Beverly Van Guilder

“Dr. K was instrumental in heading me in the right direction to get my son assessed and then diagnosed. He has ADHD, dyslexia, slow processing, and anxiety. She helped him figure out strategies for learning, focus, and confidence for not just school but for life in general!”

Alexzandra Howcroft

We’re very grateful for Dr. Garforth’s compassion and expertise in helping us find an answer to my daughter’s challenges and getting support as well as an individual education plan for my daughter to relieve some of her academic stress. Would recommend Dr. Garforth with full confidence in helping people identify and work towards overcoming learning challenges.
