What others are saying...
“Lisa Parnello is nothing short of amazing! My dyslexic child could not read at all when she started working with Lisa after first grade and the situation felt hopeless. She is now testing above grade level in reading and it is all due to Lisa’s patience, expertise and knack for getting the best out of kids. We could not recommend Lisa more highly.”
