• If it were not for the team at Breakthroughs I would have never become a licensed Tool and Die maker. Aside from the life skills that have been improved and augmented, I also received excellent real life advice. During my time at Breakthroughs I came to love and cherish each and every person who worked with me and helped me along the path of success. I myself, have noticed huge changes in every aspect of my life from memory and communication to the relationships that I have with family and friends. My attitude towards life has changed for the better. I do not feel the weight that comes with feeling sub-par to everyone around you. I would strongly recommend the Breakthroughs program to anyone to better themselves - without hesitation.
  • Father regarding son: The satisfaction I see in him for his own life is amazing. He sees himself from a more positive point of view. He would not take input. Now he is less defensive. He’s been at Breakthroughs for just over a year and will be debt free shortly. I can talk to him about finances or whatever else. He enjoys reading. Now I can see him taking over my company and am making plans in this direction.
  • I am 28 years old. I work in the fabrication industry. My company enrolled me in the Breakthroughs program in early September 2006. Some of my responsibilities are to read blue prints and figure out how to build and fabricate the products for the customer and company the best and fastest way possible. Also, part of my job is to work with tools such as squares, grinders, measuring tapes and calculators. In doing this I have tolerances that I must keep according to blue print specifications. So as you can see I have a lot of thinking to do at my job. I would just like to say that the Breakthroughs program has made a very big difference in my life. It has also made a difference in how I interact with people. I can interact with my friends and co-workers much better than I could before. I can solve issues at work that used to be problems and can do them much easier and faster than before. Mathematical problems were difficult and still are at times, but since the program I am doing much better in this area. I recommend this program to children or adults. Both can benefit from it as I did. Thank you Breakthroughs Staff.
  • When I was teaching, people knew I was avoiding extra curricular activities. I was struggling to cope in the classroom and even considering anything else, was overwhelming. Taking on any form of responsibility overwhelmed me. Today I get excited when I’m offered leadership opportunities and I have the judgment skills to sort out whether it’s right for me at this time in my life.
  • I make decisions easier which reduces my overall stress level.
  • My staff have commented that I’m more relaxed and less stressed out.
  • As a manager, I can address conflicts easier and earlier which has reduced my overall stress and affected the atmosphere at work in a positive way.
  • I was given a new position. I know I would have lost my job without Breakthroughs intervention.
  • I was unhappy in my work as an administrative assistant for a large organization. They referred me for a Breakthroughs assessment. This assessment suggested that I look into a career field I would not have considered. When I graduated from university, I won an award and now I enjoy working in this field.
  • Mother regarding son: After talking to Pauline about our 23 year old son, I was encouraged to know that there was help available. The information was positive and we were eager to get the help our son needed. After working with Pauline and her staff we could definitely see a difference in the way our son communicated with us. He became open and talkative and his judgment skills improved. Breakthroughs has provided a compassionate atmosphere for my son to thrive in socially, emotionally and spiritually. Thank you Breakthroughs for all your efforts.
  • As a teacher I came to Breakthroughs feeling I was ready for a career change. My assessment revealed high management and entrepreneurial skills along with my teaching abilities.
  • I had trouble understanding what people said to me. As well I had trouble remembering what people said. I felt like my brain processed very slowly. I was 45 years old and knew these things would only get worse unless I could find help. I was afraid I would eventually lose my job. Today I can listen to others without pressure, comprehend and remember what they have said. With the increased comprehension, I can also apply what I learn. I really couldn’t do that before. My eyes can track along print much easier and I make fewer errors. I feel less stress and don’t have to check my words repeatedly.
  • I am a blind adult. CNIB has a course to help blind people become more spatially aware. I was unable to pass this course. Because of spatial issues, I wasn’t able to live on my own. I felt embarrassed to have others watch me eat in a restaurant because I would miss my mouth sometimes. Thanks to Breakthroughs, I now have my own apartment, am working on building my computer skills, and enjoy eating out with others.
  • Coming to Breakthroughs has enabled me to speak up for myself for the first time in my life.
  • The results of my testing at Breakthroughs showed I had a short-term memory challenge. The team at Breakthroughs designed a personal program that addressed and helped to increase my short-term memory. A combined effort of working at the office with Pauline and on my own at home proved to be effective. Not only did I notice a significant improvement in my short-term memory, but my wife did too. I can now remember a task without having to write it down. I can rely on my own memory for the first time in my life. I am now in the process of applying to the police department. Thanks for helping with my breakthrough!
  • I dropped out of college because I was overwhelmed and couldn’t keep up. After therapy at Breakthroughs, I graduated as an educational assistant and now enjoy helping kids who are struggling to learn.
  • Staff feedback: It is exciting to see clients receive feedback in areas which determine life choices. This vital information can help them select further education, upgrade their current career or find a new career that they can excel in.
