“I would like to let you know how fantastic Mrs. Vanlandingham has been for my son. He has suspected dyslexia and ADHD and reading has been a huge challenge. Mrs. Vanlandingham has been able to connect with him, and he has made great progress in the last year. She has been truly magical for us and I am excited for my youngest to get a chance to work with her as well.” (T.T. Chantilly, VA)
