THROUGH SCHOOL AS ADHD

Jason was slow to sit up at nursery and at pre-school we were told that they were having problems with him and that they wouldn’t go on any school trips unless I went with him.   So as I was working full time, I had to give up work and go ...Read more

Finished ProgramJune 2015

Amelie is a wonderfully polite and sunny natured student. She has a great talent for music and is going on to study violin at Music College in September. Amelie has always needed to put in extra time and effort to achieve academically. At the same time Amelie also needed to invest more time to learn new pieces on her violin, sight-reading having been challenging and tiring for her.

 

Despite being in the middle of her A Level exams Amelie undertook the two-week treatment program and committed 110% to completing all ...Read more

Finished ProgramApril 2014

Like any parent I wanted to see my children succeed in life. I knew both my boys were fit and healthy and far from ‘thick’, yet reports showed there was little effort shown academically and results could definitely have been better. At a Parent-Teacher consultation we were told not to worry that our ...Read more

LocatedDorset
Problem AreasMemory, Reading, Confidence, Low Self-Esteem, Spelling, Concentration, Anxiety, Difficulty with Maths Comprehension,
Finished ProgramMarch 2013

Liberty had difficulty in retaining her learning, & needed to regularly go over the same ground to retain it, which was not that easy once her GCSE years had begun. In fact at Junior school, it seemed unlikely that Liberty would be able for GCSE’s. So however did she beat the predictions?

 

 

Liberty had difficulty in retaining information and she was a slow and reluctant reader. Also she was lacking in self-confidence, and very worried about getting things wrong & quite negative about her abilities. It was difficult for her to complete an assignment/paper in ...Read more

Age16 Years
LocatedYorkshire
Problem AreasWorking Memory, Spelling Issues, Letter & Number Reversals, Short Concentration Span, Low Self-Esteem,
Finished ProgramFebruary 2014

Ramsay had limited concentration and we would liked to have seen more depth to his written answers in his schoolwork. Gaining some improvement in his written work was important to us and we also wanted to see some improvement in his reading ability as well.

 

Background:         We realised when Ramsay was 9 years old that he had learning difficulties as he started to struggle to keep up and teachers began to say “He can write more.” His public school did a dyslexia screening test, however we knew it was also in the ...Read more

Finished ProgramDecember 2013

Hans was being quite a rascal in class, due in part to his inability to concentrate, plus he was struggling with his handwriting. For Heluska it was more that her memory was letting her down in being able to obtain the grades we felt she could achieve.

 

Background:  Heluska had academic issues. She would get especially frustrated after school. She would come home and let her hair down. A friend who’d had ...Read more

Claire was really battling. She was diagnosed in Year 3 as having ADHD by the Educational Psych. Since that time she’d been under the appropriate doctors and medication and over many years received extra tutorial help. Only to be assessed again at the end of Year 10 with comments descriptive of Dyslexia.

 

Client Background: Despite Claire’s diagnosis of ADHD and being on meds and under doctors, none of this seemed to bring any change and schoolwork just didn’t have any meaning for Claire. The ...Read more
