      Both of my children have flourished since meeting Sande. My son had gained confidence in his spatial awareness and trying new tasks. His ability to write has come along way since working with Sande. He actually enjoys doing games and worksheets now. My daughter has also grown a lot with her time here. She has learned skills to overcome some Sensory issues like wearing socks and trying different foods.

      My daughter started at NDFK when she was 8 and just diagnosed with ADHD and Sensory Processing Disorder. She had wild mood swings, a short attention span, and not much coordination or awareness of her body. Going to NDFK once a week for 2 years has really helped her mind and become more focused. It has helped in areas I did not anticipate, such as handwriting, social skills, and even car sickness. It is a playful and fun
      approach to supporting her needs!

      There are not enough words to express how grateful my family is with the OT services my son has been receiving from Sande over the past 5 1/2 years. Sande has taught us so much about sensory needs and fine motor issues to help make our son succeed. We have seen so much grow in our son over the last five years. Our son currently is handling his academic load well. Our son enjoys every session with Sande and it has made, and continues to make such a huge impact on our family and our son’s lives.

      Sande is so great with Cavan and how to handle any difficulties that may arise during sessions. She works with him on difficult tasks but also has praise when he does a good job. WE have been coming for about a year and the overall progress has been great for his confidence and skills. Cavan always looks forward to his time with Sande.

      Since seeing Sande, my 4.5 year old son has learned to dress himself, use a spoon, and ride a bike! These are all things that he struggled with, due to motor planning issues. He is also more open to trying new foods, and his speech has become much more conversational with longer sentences and insightful questions. Sande really cares about her clients and has been a great member of out sons "Team."

      Sande Rutstein is lovely and has really helped my daughter with non-spectrum sensory processing issues. She was affordable for out-of-pocket assessment and treatment. She works with parents very well around scheduling and meeting children's needs. My daughter has learned several self-calming techniques and how to cope in challenging situations. We are grateful for everyone at New Directions for Kids!
