We love receiving messages like this about a member of our team.

[Also] Carly the OT who came out to [my child’s] school was amazing!!! She gave me some really useful info/knowledge and resources to research. I went away feeling like I had a little clearer understanding of how [my child’s] brain works and how I can further support her. Please pass on my thanks.
