Frankly, it feels like an honor to be a part of Lab, to play a role in our collective mission and process of helping students with learning differences discover their best selves and succeed.”

“It’s easy to feel excited to get up each morning and come to Lab. Sure, we work incredibly hard, but there’s nothing more rewarding than witnessing a child find success in a skill area that used to be so daunting for them like a ‘non-reader’ turning into a bookworm or a student who struggled to express herself talk enthusiastically about a family vacation or favorite movie.”
