What People Say …

My Daughter has been struggling for many years in School.  She is very bright but was having difficulty keeping up with her peers and was becoming increasingly frustrated.  I quickly arranged to meet Maria, and what a wonderful lady, accomplished, highly intelligent, compassionate and lots of fun.  We had a full assessment which confirmed my suspicions and the thorough 15 page report has proved to be invaluable for getting my Daughter the support in place that she so desperately needed.  Thank you for helping my little girl to succeed and feel happy and confident at school once again.

Rhian, parent of a 10 year old Primary School Pupil, Pembroke
