Thanks for everything! You have kept me going when I wanted to quit. Thanks to you our daughter will be in school this year!


I can’t tell you what your support has meant and how grateful I am that you have taken time to help us, and others too!


Without Pat’s help, my children would not have received the assistance they needed to reach all of their academic potential. Pat’s step by step instructions to me on how to begin the CSE process was a vital part, as well as follow-up instruction. As a direct result of Pat’s insight my daughter graduated with her class, and my son received everything he needed to be at grade level very early on. I still rely on Pat’s insight and guidance.

Pat Exman is fabulous – she’s very bright and very creative. She is the premier advocate – best I’ve ever known. She knows enough about Lyme to be an effective advocate for kids with Lyme, and she very much appreciates how bad it can get, and what the kids need. She’s all about strategizing.
