Hear from other parents:

The PEC program’s provider (Ethel Salomon) spent time to fully understand our family situation, offering her full attention and guiding questions, with an empathic and non-judgmental approach. She delivered practical tools that not only made sense, but were helpful for delivering observable change.”

” I love the flexibility of the timing and the fact that it’s free! This type of advice would’ve cost me so much!! The fact that it’s from the comfort of my home on the phone, and I don’t need to run to make an appointment because I can talk wherever I happen to be.”

Ethel has so much priceless advice about any question I ask . She is compassionate and validates me. Ethel’s warm voice and caring nature makes me feel confident in myself that I’m able to help my family succeed.”
