Thanks a lot (Mindy) for your advice and assessment. (Child) enjoyed playing with you during the sessions very much and looking forward to the upcoming session every week. We noticed his significant progress, too. Really thousand thanks. Actually, his teachers also noticed his significant progress after the therapy. He is more willing to follow instructions and is now interacting with teachers and classmates in English and Putonghua. The visiting educational psychologist in school also remarked him as being "completely different". She was a bit concerned during her last visit but was much delighted to see his progress after a few months.
