"Monica’s uniquely warm welcome when we attended for the assessment itself immediately put my son at ease and meant he could try to do his best with the range of tests. The subsequent report and follow up were equally comprehensive and very helpful. I would strongly recommend Monica’s kind and professional approach to any parent seeking to help their struggling child."
