Sometimes parents just ‘feel’ that their child is not progressing as they should.
What is important is that the outcome provides a route forwards in terms of what can be done to improve the child’s daily performance.
In addition to dealing with difficulties at a superficial level, we also look for the underlying causes relating to the body’s development, physical, social/emotional and intellectual aspects. To ensure a comprehensive approach, we use a 3 step process:
Step 1: Following an initial consult, we gather background information about your child.
Step 2: We assess underlying causes and current ability levels to determine the best possible intervention for your child.
Step 3: Following the assessment, you will receive a written report explaining the results and recommendations for your child. We will discuss the findings with you at a consultation and provide expert advice on the next steps forward to unlocking your child’s potential.
A call from a specialist will provide you with honest, expert advice and point you in the right direction.
