To all who are wondering if this is the
program for you,
I am writing to let others
know that Rocky Point Academy has changed my life.
Before I attended the academy a year ago, I was on and off
of medications for ADD. I tried phonics programs, behavior
programs, self-improvement courses, bio-feedback, oils, herbs, vitamins and
minerals, and special diets for allergies... none of which made a difference for
an extended period of time. I had no real friends,
I had problems getting along with my parents, siblings and teachers.
I was constantly late,
disorganized and had no self confidence.
Throughout school I was
constantly being told that I was not performing to my full potential, no matter
how hard I tried. I hated going to school because it was both hard and
boring at the same time. I would go into test knowing the material and
come out with a C or D. Homework took me a longer time to complete, so I
didn't have time to join any sports or clubs I would have enjoyed. In
other words, life was hard and
I didn't know why.
A year after taking the
program the story is almost the opposite. After working through the
concepts of change, consequence, time, sequence and order
I have no problems with organization. I balance university courses,
part time work and sports with ease (most of the time). I
feel comfortable in social settings and very rarely offend anyone (I used
to do it constantly without thinking.). So now, I have many good friends
and get along with my family. I have been off of
Ritalin® since the program and my friends and family can't
believe the changes they've seen.
School is easier.
I spend less time on homework because I can understand
what I'm reading the first time through. I get a lot more out of
class because I'm oriented and tests don't worry me as much anymore. I
used to be disorganized, so my homework usually wasn't turned in on time--- now
I get things handed in early! For the first time I
am learning instead of memorizing. I get along with my teachers and
even find myself helping others understand the material.
Not all of this changed over
night. It took time, but before the program it wasn't even possible to
make the changes. Without the program I never would
have attempted university or felt confident enough to pursue the dreams I
have always wanted.
Thank you Rocky Point
Academy for making my dreams attainable!
