How we've helped

I am so pleased and feel very lucky to have been allocated such incredible support workers for my daughter. They are both wonderful with her and she is very happy. I was very worried about how things would go and I am delighted. Both ladies are so highly skilled in behavioural difficulties and have excellent management techniques.
