What our clients say...

  • Lucy has the child at the centre of her thoughts at all times. She is highly credible - an ultimate professional in every situation and someone that completely understands how life for an autistic child and their family must be.
  • I cannot thank you and Lucy enough for all the help and support you have given me and my family over the past several weeks. Lucy has been so supportive, compassionate and knowledgeable throughout this ordeal, I don't know where we would have been without her.
  • I cannot begin to express my gratitude to Leo. She has been a true guiding light in very murky waters, and she has remained an essential support and warrior for my son's needs. Leo is exceedingly empathetic and understanding, and is unafraid to be a voice for the child. Her expertise is invaluable, as too is her warm and friendly nature.
  • Leo has always provided experienced, knowledgeable support in helping me to work with pupils with a variety of Special Needs. Leo is full of common sense, has an excellent sense of humour and adults and young people alike warm to her quickly.
  • Fantastic training session from Clair and Lucy. I learnt a lot and have taken away useful strategies for supporting dyslexia and autism. A really informative afternoon – a lot to think about!
  • George, meeting you inspired me to change my career to help others with autism and SEND. Thank you for all your help over the years.
  • Clair’s support and guidance has enabled me to flourish within my academic studies and development of self-belief.
  • Leonie, I attended the Bereavement Forum at Myton Hospice yesterday and I found your presentation inspiring. I do not work with children however, I found your knowledge and content of the subject fascinating.
  • Lucy and Jules are so passionate and have such a wealth of knowledge about autism. They are always willing to help in any way they can.
  • What the team offer is priceless to a family in desperate need of support and guidance, so thank you for being there, for listening and helping us move forward. I know we couldn't have done it without you. Clare & Steve Dolphin
  • Clair's expertise, her diligence and her confident and supportive manner have provided us with highly professional documentation and sound judgements enabling us to to obtain the appropriate support for our pupils.
  • Leo has been amazing over the past 12 months. The difference to D and us has been significant. He was miserable and anxious and didn't want to be at school at all. He is now happy and included and his needs are understood - he is once again engaged in school and learning.
  • Leonie, your passion, expertise, experience and positivity is so refreshing. My SENCo and I are very excited to be working with you.
  • You have done some wonderful work. I have frequently been filled with warmth knowing these vulnerable young people have been supported by such skilled, warm and understanding people.
  • Jules, we now have a much better understanding of S's difficulties. We have changed (and hopefully improved!) the way we interact with him which is having a positive effect on the whole family. Many thanks again for all your advice and support.
  • Over the past 10 years Bidford School has benefited directly from Clair's excellent work which has enhanced our provision for pupils with SEND. I recommend Clair's work without hesitation.
  • We can’t thank you enough Jo for all the support you have provided for G over the past five years. You have helped the whole family understand G's needs and so wonderfully celebrated his strengths. Thank you.
  • To encompass everything George did for my family over the years and what he meant, especially to me was extremely difficult to put into words. I wouldn't be who I am today without his input. Your company and George's memory should be celebrated for what you all do.
  • Lucy - the NQT autism training was a really useful session and brilliantly presented. It was delivered in a very professional but open and friendly way - thank you Lucy!
  • Thank you dearly Leo because if it weren't for you I wouldn't be quite who I am today. You're a fantastic teacher and I'll never forget you.
