This program is great! It is super easy to use and understand, both for me and my students. I like how the tips are all easy to implement. It doesn't take a whole lot of time, materials, or effort to put the strategies SOAR suggests to use. And it doesn't take long until students really start seeing the difference that a few small changes can make. Thank you for SOAR!

Susan's book-SOAR has been an invaluable aid in using with my HS students. What I really love about it is that she herself experienced learning problems as a child in school, as did I. She provides readers with hope, instills a can-do-it attitude, has wonderful analogies which drive home her points beautifully, and shares great strategies. The pocket organizer for writing a research paper is so simple in concept, yet designed to help students organize a huge project in easy, doable steps. Wish I had these strategies when I was in school, life would have been so much easier! Kudos to Susan for her program. Sincerely, Betsy Comeau
