I first heard about A Chance to Grow and the Summer Boostup program from a pediatric physical therapist I know. I had told her my concerns about my daughter's memory and coordination even though she had no formal diagnosis. She was always a super bright kid (reading at age 2) but started having trouble remembering facts in school including math facts and had difficulties with reading comprehension.
I also told my sister about the Boostup program as she had a daughter struggling to learn to read and had a speech language pathologist tell her she was dyslexic. The pediatric physical therapist told me if I just took my daughter to any regular physical therapist or occupational therapist they would struggle with goals for her since she was so high functioning, but A Chance to Grow would find things to work on to help her.
I decided to take my RV to Minneapolis for the three weeks of Boostup for two of my three children and my sister joined me with her two children. While there, we also had a couple of reflex integration sessions. We both noticed positive changes in our children after about a week. My daughter became more adventurous on the playground and my niece, age 10, read her first book! We were very happy with how much we learned about the brain while we were there.
A Chance to Grow exceeded our expectations. Even before we went, I felt that the program was worth the price and it definitely was. We are hoping to return to A Chance to Grow next summer for more Boostup and reflex integration.
