Testimonials from individual evaluations and therapeutic work

"I want to share with you what a big impact you had on my child. She really enjoyed her testing with you, she felt smart, comfortable, heard and understood. We also felt informed and at ease with you. Thanks to you, she's already done so much - she got into the high school of her choice and is very proud. She also joined in a play which built her discipline and her self-confidence with friends. We owe you a big debt of gratitude - she's going into the hard years of adolescence with so much...." Mother of 13 year old, Jerusalem

"Hi Caroline, I just wanted to write to thank you for all your help. You've been amazing for S and for us but I totally understand it morphed into something more than we all expected from an evaluation leading into your role as a parental coordinator!

I've appreciated your advice, understanding and common sense and so much time and dedication to S.  I know it's not been easy juggling us as parents.  You've really navigated a very delicate path and have helped us so much to take responsibilities in different areas, which has already been a huge help in and of itself. 

You've been such a pleasure to work with. Thank you again so much for all your help, especially for going above and beyond and all the emergencies, phone calls and emails etc.  I truly appreciated it!

PS - I've attached S’s report.  It's a definite improvement and I hope to keep you posted with good news from him! From mother of 11 year old boy. 

"Just wanted to let you know that we had the vaadat hasama today and our son is now eligible for a kitat tikshoret. Thanks again for your help. If you hadn't picked up on this problem when you evaluated him, we'd still be in the dark, not understanding his challenges and feeling completely frustrated. We still don't completely understand but at least now we have a direction and a framework to help us. Working with you was a pleasure." Mother of 6 year old boy

"Just wanted to say a big thank you! Shira is now attending school all day and is making friends. I can't tell you what a big weight has been lifted from my shoulders! I feel such a relief that she's back to her old self again, regaining confidence and enjoying her school experience. Thank you for all your help and wisdom." 
Mother of 9 year old newcomer. 

"I want to let you know that I received the results of my final exams this week. Everything went very well, certainly much better than expected. Our last meeting came at a critical time for me, and your advice really helped me put my worst concerns in perspective. Your guidance has helped me change my perspective for the better. I want to thank you for our conversations and for the insight that allowed me to push through some very difficult times. Your support has been so meaningful - thank you so much.". 26 year old student.

Testimonials from my newcomer parents’ workshops

 “…Caroline put the education system into perspective, and gave me the understanding that what I am experiencing is "normal" in terms of the behaviour of the kids and staff within the school environment.”

“…Reminded me that although not everything is within our control, help is within reach.”

“…It is crucial for olim to understand their position within the school system and their benefits and rights - If you don’t know what to ask for, you WILL lose out. Thanks very much for all the info.”

“Caroline's lecture was extremely informative and helpful. As a new Olah, it was wonderful to have someone slowly & comprehensively walk me through the Israeli school system.”

“I thought Caroline was an excellent presenter, interesting and informative. She seems to be quite intuitive regarding kids' adjustment to the country. I really enjoyed the presentation.”


“Your session last night was very helpful. You addressed issues that were relevant to my younger children as well.  Your slides on " Creating an Intercultural Perspective" especially spoke to me and I shared your thoughts with my husband when I got home. As I mentioned to you, having been an Olah myself as a child, I am very sensitive to addressing my kids' needs in this area, and to ease their klita as much as possible. Many thanks.”
