When you arrive at Back to Basics Reading Clinic, drive up the driveway and turn right into the parking lot. Come through the gate and up the steps to enter the clinic. You will be greeted by one labrador retriever, colored brown. He loves children and children love him! Please let us know if you have allergies.
When my son entered second grade, he still wasn't reading and found it frustrating. Mike's gentle approach created a lifelong love of reading.

Mike is a walking, talking dictionary and I have learned a lot from him, more than just reading.
