A Message from Jamie. I'm Jamie Levine. As a child, I struggled academically and never understood why things seemed more challenging for me than everyone else. As a result, I began to doubt myself and my abilities. My struggles continued for years, seemingly without cause. It wasn't until I was in college that I was diagnosed with ADHD, and everything clicked into place. Finally, I understood the "why" of my personal struggle for the first time, and I was relieved.
Right then, I knew what I was born to do; my life's work would be helping families discover ways to help their children avoid the uncertainty and helplessness I often experienced as a child. I wanted to find struggling kids and families and help them realize, no matter the underlying issue, if they could better understand themselves and own their challenges, they could enter a place of confidence and thrive. So, I studied; I completed my Master of Special Education and worked in the school system. I learned from and worked alongside some of New York's brightest and most accomplished forerunners in the education and mental health industry. I began to see a disconnect between homes and schools that had to be bridged, and the beginning concepts for my practice began to form. Over time and experience, it evolved into something bigger - as a powerful and comprehensive program focused on early intervention and designed for individual success - to give families the tools they were desperately seeking.
