Why Do Families Love Lexercise?

Lauren Furman, parent

Student’s age: 13 | Professional Therapy

“I am a Speech-Language Pathologist…I know the importance of providing the right remediation. With Lexercise, for the first time, we were able to address our son’s specific reading needs and as a result his reading skills have greatly improved.  Even more important to us though, his self-confidence and self-esteem have improved.”

Michele Castle, parent

Student’s age: 10 | Professional Therapy

“My kids just took the entrance exams to get into a private school and passed on grade level! This is a real accomplishment! The kids really liked working with their teacher and played their games with no arguments every single day, even on holidays, without complaint. I’m grateful for the therapy and believe it was entirely worth the investment of time and money.”
