Posted by Superkids Team on 6/10/21 2:20 PM

A Superkid update is in! We have new information to share about Kelby since his previous post, and we are very happy to report that he has made tremendous advances and progress in his learning and concentration skills! Kelby previously had difficulty concentrating which affected his grades in school. Since Kelby began taking medication this year, it has effectively shown to improve his concentration in schoolwork, and his test scores in all subjects are all 90 points or more. We even have a recent report card to share with you, indicating his high marks and great rapport from teachers. Kelby is proud of his grades and is quick to share his good marks with his social workers.
