Let us introduce you to a few of Breakthroughs clients:

  • A poorly coordinated 5 year old with learning challenges is now playing hockey, skateboarding and learning to read thanks to his work at Breakthroughs.
  • A child entering grade two and only able to recognize a few words inconsistently, understands numbers but unable to remember facts. This child is now reading on grade level with his math facts memorized.
  • A grade four student whose assessment showed extremely low comprehension with very limited reading skills-once afraid and unable to read to anyone, recently read her birthday cards in front of all her family and friends with confidence and fluency.
  • A grade nine student struggled remembering what he studied for tests. His test results were inconsistent. A year later he received his first report card with an average honors.
  • A teen in grade eleven ready to quit school, extremely discouraged-Now excited to be in college.
