It's been a while since my 19-year old son has been to Inside Out Learners, but I thought you might like to know how he's been doing the last couple of years. He has been successful in high school and will graduate this year with around a 3.4 GPA. The help my then, 16-year old received from Inside Out Learners... Although still a challenge, his socialization skills have gradually improved. He started an after-school/weekend job this spring and in April attended a PERT program at Wilson Workforce Rehabilitation Center in Fishersville, VA. Keep up the good work you do!

We are so thankful we have found Inside Out Learners. The Social Skills Group covers so much great stuff our son has been missing.

Thank you & your staff for being so awesome and really helping my son come out of his shell. His transition to kindergarten was not super smooth but I know he did so much better than he would have without your help!

My 11-year old has truly started to shine. From getting selected by his peers to be a safety patrol at school, to earning the positive character award at sleep-away camp... It warms my heart to see him going off with friends to the pool. Most of all he is happy with who he is as a person!
When my son started attending the Social-Emotional Learning Program at Inside Out Learners, that was the first time he really found a group he enjoyed. We definitely tried a lot of different groups, sports etc, and all of it was hard for him to feel comfortable. My son was able to apply the social competencies he developed at Inside Out Learners to his school and social life. This was a start for him to connect with others and feel confident. Thank you!

Terrie Livingston is the owner and is a true gem! COVID 19-permitting, she will invite you to come to the center in Greenbrier area of Chesapeake to meet her and learn more about what the center has to offer. They are a fabulous group of professionals! My daughter has received literacy therapy in the form of the Wilson Reading Program from Malerie Killen (The Reading Specialist at Inside Out Learners) for the last twelve months. I have worked with a variety of speech/language/occupational therapists for twelve years and I have never met another exceptional group like Inside Out Learners!

Awesome place! Great individualized plans, structured group interactions, and a qualified and caring staff. Genuinely care about the kids. IOL needs to be on the "go to" list for any parents looking to improve their children's social interactions!

Terrie and her team are amazing. A friend suggested we check this place out for our daughter last summer, and after an initial evaluation, Terrie helped us set up sessions aimed at fitting our daughter’s needs. Within a few weeks we were already seeing major improvement in our daughter’s ability to empathize and engage with others. The crowning jewel moment was when our daughter was selected as citizen of the month for the entire fourth grade at her school! What a testament to how far she’d come and how much of an improvement others have also seen in her! I cannot sing praises enough for IOL and all they do.

This program is the best thing that has come to Chesapeake! Terrie is absolutely genuine and supportive not only to my son, but also to me. I can come to her with any concerns about my child and she makes the time in her busy schedule to talk and listen. Terrie has been tutoring my son since March 2016 and I have seen so much progress! He is also very enthusiastic about attending his tutoring sessions with her. It's great to know that Terrie and her team are around to support my son while he is going through this learning curve.
