My 15 year old ASD son has had some real difficulties accessing education over the years. He is complex and bright, but finding the right sort of support for him has been a challenge.
I have listened into his first session with you today, with tears in my eyes. Despite this being an online session (which he generally struggles with), he was engaged from start to finish. The tutor navigated the session with expertise and no support was required from me at all.
My son is actually excited about his next session with you and considering his recent experiences with accessing an education – this is a real joy.
Thanks to you, from a very grateful Mum.
