It is with sadness we share the news Harry Wachs, OD passed away Tuesday, July 26, 2016. Harry was a true visionary and pioneer whose knowledge gave us the vision to further advance the development of so many children. He will be greatly missed and always remembered for his wisdom and knowledge. We were so fortunate to be able to work together and we will carry on his legacy at Profectum.
Profectum and Celebrate the Children School will be forever grateful for the genius of Dr. Harry Wachs and all that he contributed to our developmental approaches. Both he and his wife, Ruth, were an integral part of our clinical families. Harry joined his wife, Ruth, Tuesday, but his work will live on forever within CTC, Profectum training programs and many other professional programs that have incorporated Harry’s thinking into their multidisciplinary, progress intervention programs! Profectum will publish a training video on Dr. Wach’s approach in 2017 that will be an invaluable resource to schools and clinics.
