“We were referred to KidSkills by a specialist at BC Children’s Hospital. We started with group classes and then also joined some semi – private groups, and private assessment to help us identify better coping strategies for our child. Ronit is good with kids, and good at what she does. She has a structured but flexible approach in assessments and it helps keeps kids engaged. She was great in helping us work our school also, and had practical suggestions for the school to help our son. We are very appreciative of her!” Heather Lovelace
