I attended your social skills groups when I was a child and teenager. I wanted to contact you to let you know how much of an impact your expertise has helped me.
Attending the social skills groups greatly improved my social functioning, and helped me to be more confident in social situations. Because of you, I learned how to make friends, among other things. Also, you helped me with my anxiety and my OCD. After high school, I went to a transition program which helped me as well. I then went to a community college for a while, where I did well academically. I then earned a scholarship to another college. I will be a junior there soon! This college has been an amazing experience. I was not sure if I would ever be able to go to college, but luckily this college has the supports that I need. I have done very well academically and socially. I am a Psychology major now. I have a great group of friends and I am in an Acapella group.
What prompted this email was that I was in the car and we passed your former office, where I attended my first social skills group when I was in second grade. I remembered that I wanted to contact you then. Thank you for everything that you have done to help me! I am forever grateful.
