Brehm Students have a lot to talk about

“I didn’t understand that people were trying to help me. I didn’t know who to trust.  Now I’m happy with my life. Better in school and grades. I love sports, basketball and soccer and I’m playing on Brehm’s competitive teams.  My learning differences don’t control me anymore – Now I’m in control. I just love it a lot!”
