What parents say

Lisa was pivotal to our son’s successful transition to secondary school. Lisa listened to our concerns and gave us constructive strategies to use at home, which really helped.

She also produced a written report for school and liaised with staff ensuring that they understood our son’s needs and how to meet them.

Our son wouldn’t have had such a positive start to Secondary School without Lisa’s expertise and guidance.

― A Parent

When we needed to understand more about our son’s difficulties with some aspects of his schoolwork, Lisa spent time with our son, myself and the school to get an all-round understanding of his needs.

What was even more important for us though was that she provided recommendations as to how we could help him going forward.
