A Mother’s Love
The term “working mother” seems a bit redundant. After all, mother is more of a verb than a noun. Mothers will go to the ends of the earth to take care of their children; however, normally, they don’t have to travel that far. Well, Susan Sorensen did have to travel, and she flew over 5000 miles round trip to the Mainland every time she sought out a new specialist for her daughter.
That trend continued for years before Susan was introduced to Interactive Metronome® (IM), a therapeutic program that helps users improve mental timing in a systematic, engaging and flexible format. Although Sorensen recalled “improvement like I hadn’t ever seen before,” there were no certified IM providers in Hawaii. So, she did what she had to as a concerned mother, she became IM certified.
It wasn’t long before her friends noticed the amazing progress of her daughter and began asking her for help. In 2008, Sorensen opened Learn2Focus, a training program for children suffering from a variety of conditions, including ADHD, dyslexia and developmental delays. She also treats adults that experienced dementia, strokes and other brain insults.
