Our Services


"We feel a real sense of relief that our daughter is now able to reduce her frustration and anxiety by having an understanding of the methods of learning that will work for her and why some things have been a challenge for her in the past."


"Everything was great. On the day, Aimee was warm, open and patient throughout the various assessments. I really appreciated the feedback meeting on the day as I was able to receive the results promptly and had the opportunity to ask questions."


"Really professional service with great communication throughout the process. The assessment covered what was asked for. Very helpful report, written clearly with recommendations for home and school."
