Ann was just 14 when she wound up at Northpoint School in September. She had spent time in a psychiatric hospital after cutting herself and starting fires, one of which was at her high school. But eight months later, with the help of Northpoint's learning lab, Ann (not her real name) is now a budding poet who may have some of her work published along with that of her classmates. Students will receive awards for their poetry June 25 at the school's year-end performance.

I read with interest your article "EXXCEL Links Home With the School" (June 22). It was a very encouraging piece, although it had one error. A USC dean said he "believed that the project was the first of its kind in the nation." The San Fernando Valley Child Guidance Clinic has a similar project that is now in its third year. The clinic's program, Home Instruction, links home and school. Last year the program raised preschoolers' IQ 48 points, a highly significant difference compared to the control group.
