Author: David P. Sortino

magical child (fantasy and imagination), while expecting students to successfully transition to school learning, regardless of their ability or interest level. 
Walk into any school and observe the writing or artwork on the school’s walls and you will see an incredible mixture of abilities and imagination. This mixture could be a barometer of your child’s learning abilities and actual school success.
