Dr. Clonan (Sheila) has been a lifesaver. From the first interview I knew that I had found the right person to help with my daughter. Every teacher that I had spoken to in the past was not able to help, until Dr. Clonan worked with my daughter. After the testing and consultations, we worked with my school and now the teachers understand how to help us. A real success.
Thank you for your help!
Working with Sheila helped us really hammer out what was going on with my son's performance at school. Sheila kept digging & working with Jack to figure out patterns of his thinking & performance - when something didn't measure up or make sense, she went back in to figure it out. Worth every penny & second of time we spent!
For years we were suspicious that our 10yr old daughter had some kind of processing disorder, possibly dyslexia. However, we were unable to get any evaluation from the school except the Connors Scale for ADHD. The referral to Sheila Clonan has quite possibly saved our daughter and our sanity. Dr. Clonan's evaluation process is extensive, yet my daughter never once felt overwhelmed or intimidated.
Final Diagnosis: Mixed Dyslexia and combined presentation ADHD. Dr. Clonan's report was so thorough that the school district had no room to deny that services are needed for our child.
Since the evaluation, Sheila has made herself available for continued advice and direction as we navigate the world of a dyslexic child. We have also referred Sheila to friends who experienced similar positive results.
The CNY Community is lucky to have Dr. Clonan as an advocate for our children!
We were looking for an experienced professional who would approach our daughter with an open-mind (to fully see who she was, not what “box” she might immediately fit in) and curiosity (not looking for “quick answers” but accurate ones), who would explore the subtle nuances of our daughter’s strengths and challenges.
Someone like this is hard to find, yet we found all these qualities in Dr. Clonan, as well as a genuine warmth and compassion that put our daughter at ease and made the evaluation an incredibly pleasant experience. Her report was thorough and her recommendations were specific and helpful.
We would highly recommend Dr. Clonan to other families!
The Independent Educational Evaluation we received for our son from Educational Solutions of Central New York was nothing short of exceptional. Dr. Clonan’s knowledge along with her genuine concern for my son changed his life! She is willing to take time to help you fully understand specifically how to meet the educational needs of your child. We are incredibly thankful for her efforts not only for our family, but for our community as well. Thank you, Dr. Clonan!
Dr. Michelle Storie conducted an exceptional educational evaluation of our three sons.They each enjoyed their time with her, never complaining about the exercises. The reports Dr. Storie compiled were thorough and individualized. With her expertise, we were able to make informed decisions about our children's academic and social needs. Our children are thriving at school again!
Dr. Michelle Storie worked with my daughter's school district to do some additional testing. She was able to very specifically identify Anne's strengths and weaknesses and give us and the district great information and suggestions. She privided an amazingly thorough report and took time to make sure my husband and I understood everything in it. As a special education teacher and a parent I would highly recommend her services!
