Suzanne Booker-Canfield, Ph.D.



My son has learning differences and had begun to disengage from school. With Suzanne’s coaching, he reconnected and began to improve in both reading and writing. He looked forward to their sessions, where Suzanne kindled his real passion for learning.  She became a mentor to him, and even years later, Suzanne feels like family to us.
