As a family living overseas, Educational Connections was beyond efficient in helping us find just the right wilderness program and therapeutic boarding school for our 17-year-old daughter. We had a difficult situation because we are based in Shanghai where resources are few and distances are great. In an already stressful situation they put us at ease by thoroughly understanding and addressing our needs. As a result, our daughter is happy and thriving as a mature, self-actualized young adult. There are not enough words for how grateful we are.

To put it simply, Ann and Pat saved my 16-year-old daughter’s life. It was a long, painful process. Without it, though, she probably would not be with us today. And she most certainly would not have graduated high school, graduated college, married an incredible person, be gainfully employed, happy, and giving back. Thank you, Ann and Pat.

Ann and Pat have been invaluable resources. They quickly engaged with us and with those most familiar with our son to understand his situation and needs in order to provide us with critical advice and guidance. Their knowledge of available programs, and specific therapists within these programs, led to recommendations that were highly tailored to the needs of our son. The parent support group they run has been invaluable support to us as parents.
