    I am a former student of this school and I can honestly say it saved my life.

    This is a wonderful little school for kids who learn differently. My daughter has auditory and visual processing difficulties and was floundering in traditional public school. Her self esteem was very low and I was very concerned. DLD school has totally turned this around. She is happy and learning and making great progress. She now believes in herself and her own intelligence and abilities. This school continues to be an excellent experience.

    I really enjoy going to this school. The teachers are nice and they help you when you need the help. Its a small school. which i like because the classes are small. The school enviornment is friendly and all the kids are nice.
