“Dr. Carroll is our saving grace! Our son was glued to the TV playing video games night and day. She showed us how to turn him around with love and a firm hand to get him back on track and learn to enjoy reading. At 11 years old, we thought we’d never get Michael to read but we did and now he loves it, all with Dr. Carroll’s guidance!” Holly and Ben, San Francisco
