Correction

In the November 12, 2012 issue of Insight News in an article by Ivan B. Phifer entitled Lawal designs Washburn Center Insight reported the founder's name as Walter Caldwell Crosby. The founder’s name is Cadwallader Washburn. The number of children served has increased 100% and the children attend Washburn for one hour of therapy per week. We apologize for any incorrect information.
