We needed our elementary-aged daughter evaluated and Jana exceeded our expectations. She built immediate trust and a connection with our daughter and moved her through the evaluation process with confidence and empathy. Her report was completed in a timely way and Jana followed up with great resources and recommendations for out family going forward.

Jana was fantastic from the very first contact through completing the evaluation and helping us apply for the appropriate accommodation for standardized testing. Jana explained in detail the process which we knew little about. She made clear what we should expect with regard to the testing and the process to apply for accommodation post evaluation. Jana was extremely efficient in carrying the evaluation. Jana made our son feel comfortable throughout the testing. Jana made herself completely available to assist with the accommodation process. She has stayed in touch post the evaluation and accommodation process. I highly recommend Jana Parker.
- Parent of a 16 year old
We spent so many years with unanswered questions about our son. Jana was able to solve, identify and give u strategies to move forward. She worked with us endlessly to find the perfect support person to help guide us and put the results into strategies that would work for him to be successful today and in the future. We are so thankful we found Jana, and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
