    Im a parent of a set of six year old twins, one diagnosed with autism the other language disorder. Anyone who has a child with special needs knows the challenges and pressure it is just with everyday life and making the right decisions concerning school and just getting the most out of their education. Ms.Hertog is heaven sent, she's one of the best decisions I've made for their education. She's knowledgeable and professional. The school my kids attended wasn't very knowledgeable of ASD so they didn't know how to relate or handle him in certain situations but all of that changed once Ms.Hertog got involved, She got the school to bring in his very own paraprofessional, she made better IEP goals, and even had professionals to come out to the school and educate his teacher on learning strategies they even started to implement learning devices in his classroom. Im so very thankful for Ms. Hertog for making school work for my family.

As a parent of a special needs child, it meant the world to me that I could count on you. You had my child's best interests and you gave me the emotional and professional help I needed. I highly recommend Allison for her professionalism, knowledge, compassion and making sure my child received the very best. Thank you always.

    Allison is extremely knowledgeable and you can see that right when you start talking to her. She helped us tremendously during our IEP meeting and without her help and expertise we would never have gotten the results we wanted and what was best for our child. If you are having any seconds thoughts about hiring her don't, she will fight in a polite way for your child.
