Testimonials

Abi has consistently provided outstanding support to my son and, just as importantly, to the Teaching Assistants at his school, who work with him to put into action the plans Abi puts together. Abi identifies appropriate but stretching goals that are regularly monitored and adjusted as my son achieves some goals and finds others more challenging. Having frequent and regular sessions has been key to his good progress. Aside from having excellent skills as an OT I have found her to be honest, personable, professional, and supportive.” Parent of a 9 year old


“Just a word of thanks seems so little for what you have done for our son.  The in depth report you carried out was fundamental in winning at the Special Needs Tribunal so as to enable our son the right to be assessed for Statutory Assessment, which we have now received an Educational Statement for. Thank you for referring him to the correct people to assist him with his difficulties.  Your knowledge and care of how children tick, is invaluable.  As you know it’s been very difficult for me to get help with my son, and I believe without your input we would still be struggling.  Thank you so much.” Parent

 

I have had the pleasure within my role as SENCO to have worked with Natasha Blood Occupational Therapist. She has been employed by ourselves directly or from pupils parents to carry out a specific tailored block of therapy sessions or to carry out a specialist assessment. Natasha has always established a good report with whichever pupils she is working with and I have found her to be very professional in all of her conduct. I would have no hesitation in recommending Natasha.” Preparatory School SENCo

 

“I work with a number of professionals from Occupational Therapy Essex, across multiple cases at different schools. Their reports are always excellent and clear to interpret. Their support to families is unmatched and their customer service is outstanding. I look forward to working with them every time a new case with their services arises and I would highly recommend them to any prospective client.” Local Authority Caseworker


“Machel is a kind, caring and patient occupational therapist. She has worked with a number of children in our school and is full of wonderful, fun and appropriate activities.” Primary School SENCo


“Abi has supported my son and I for several months. And I cannot thank or recommend her enough.  My son thinks she is a “pretty lady who plays good games”.  These games have supported his diagnosis and formed the basis of his learning plan.  My little boy is constantly asking when Abi is coming see him again.  Excellent rates and we were able to borrow equipment before we bought it…… Thank you so much Abi” Parent


Machel tailored the sessions to my son’s needs, she took interest in his hobbies and likes and used them to make the sessions fun and engaging for him. My son has made enormous progress under Machel’s care and exceeded our expectations. Machel has given him the tools to continue progressing and manage his conditions in everyday life.” Parent of a 11 year old


Training

“I found Abi’s talk extremely interesting and useful — I had never really been clear on what dyspraxia actually was until now.  She’s a very natural, engaging speaker and pitched the information perfectly.”

“I thought the training was very useful. I feel more confident about what to look for, and think it would have been of benefit to all staff.  I also think there were some useful things in general for Early Years, such as buttons! I thought Abi was very relaxed, approachable, confident and knowledgeable. It was nice she brought items to show and for us to see and look at. Big thumbs up from me, very worthwhile.”

“Thank you very much for providing the training on Dyspraxia yesterday.  As Parents in Partnership Officers, myself and my colleagues found the training extremely beneficial as it will help us with our work supporting parents with children with special educational needs.  We have also received some positive feedback from other people that attended the training who found the training very informative and useful.”
