  • A child with ADHD problems, who could not sit still even to watch TV, was able to draw and write by himself
  • A four year old girl, who was incontinent and with very poor attention span, is now dry and confident to answer questions in front of all the class.
  • A child with mobility problems and very poor muscle control, who chewed his clothes all the time and used his 1:1 support as a prop, can now sit and play independently, can write a whole page by himself and does not chew any more.
  • A boy, who had a traumatic early life with his mother but now lives with dad, went in the space of 12 weeks went from being illiterate to reading at age appropriate level and is much happier
  • A boy, who was born very premature and constantly dribbled, made a dramatic improvement in his academic skills and became more relaxed
  • The programme is delivered for 15 minutes each day by trained and supervised Learning Support Assistants
