Don't Take Our Word For It! Praise from a Pro

Friday, Sep 8, 2017 by Child & Family Development

It is always nice to receive praise from another community professional.  Recently, an EC Director at a local charter school shared: 

"I recommended you all for a friend looking to get her child tested. Psychologist, Brandyn Street tested her son. They were extremely happy with everything. The mother is an educator and she was particularly complimentary about their parent conference after all of the testing. She said she felt like they understood everything and that they walked out confident about the information. Just recommended you to another friend. So thanks for doing a great job!"

Don't Take Our Word For It! A grateful physical therapy student

Wednesday, May 3, 2017 by Child & Family Development

Child and Family Development physical therapists and occupational therapists are pleased to partner with University of North Carolina- Allied Health programs to offer internships for students interested in pediatric therapy.   

In 2017, Jessica Turchin MPT ATRIC supported a young man completing his final physical therapy placement.  Upon completion of the program, he surprised her with a lovely note about his experience that included these words:

"...You are an amazing instructor. You are patient, supportive and challenging which has helped me grow so much.  I came into this rotation with uncertainty and very little confidence and you helped turn that around.  I had so much fun with you and all the kiddos and I feel much more comfortable with my ability and potential to become a great PT (hopefully as great as you someday!). Thank you again for all your hard work and incredible energy everyday.  You are AMAZING!"
