    "If I could give the Atlanta Speech School 6 stars I would. It has been the most amazing school for our 3 daughters. We have had children in both Kenan and the Wardlaw school and they both have had amazing experiences. The teachers in Kenan gave our daughter an excellent education. Kenan balanced traditional structure and discipline, with amazing teachers in the classroom. Our other 2 daughters have been at the Wardlaw school for 4 years and are leaving this year. They have had the best teachers, administration and resources. We are so blessed to have a school in Atlanta that can help students with such a range of learning disabilities. They are leaving the Atlanta Speech School with amazing reading skills and confidence to conquer any learning obstacles that they may encounter. The headmaster of the Atlanta Speech School is AMAZING. His office is at the front of school and he may know everyone of his 400 students names (as well as most parents). He works around the clock with the faculty and parents to make the Atlanta Speech School the best school for learning disabilities in the country.Any child that can attend the Atlanta Speech School is lucky to be there."

    "Our experience at The Atlanta Speech School has been nothing short of outstanding! Our child is a bright, smart, artistic, happy child who is also dyslexic and has some expressive/receptive language difficulties. We have seen 1st hand, our child flourishing over the past 2 years in their summer programs, learning lab and soon to be a student at Wardlaw. The teachers we have worked with have been caring, encouraging, supportive and fun!"

    "Based on my experience, this school is not intended for kids who truly have speech problems and/or learning disabilities. I believe they are looking for "ready made" kids who just need a little boost. If they are receiving any funding from the U.S. govt., I highly suggest a re-evaluation of their criteria because there is a significant lack of cultural range and versatility present in Atlanta Speech School. To that end, your child will have an unfair advantage if they haven t been exposed to the material the school uses for testing."

    "Our son attended Speech for five years, in three different "schools": one year in Stepping Stones preschool (very nurturing emotionally and good OT, but not great academically), one year in Kenan Kindergarten (worst year of my son's life -- an undiagnosed learning disability was inaccurately treated as lack of ability or effort and he was pretty much ignored by the lead teacher, who is no longer there), and three years in Wardlaw elementary (which finally addressed his academic needs, but did little for his OT, Speech and emotional/social needs). I'm giving the school an overall four star rating because they did teach my Dyslexic/ ADHD son to read and excel academically, and the Wardlaw teachers/administrators are very knowledgeable and well qualified. Just plan to seek your learning assesments, OT and Speech Therapy elsewhere, and don't expect them to deliver all they promise...."

    "The school does great things for children with disabilities, but one division, the Kenan Pre-School isn't on par with the rest of the school due in large part to the laziness of the lead teachers and Program Coordinator. They talk the talk, but don't walk the walk. I would give the other divisions 5 stars, but I am being nice in offering Kenan a mere 3 stars."
