Very good progress
"My then 4 year old son and I came to see see Nicky with concerns about DCD. Nicky listened to my concerns first, to decide whether or not an assessment was appropriate. When it came to doing the assessment, this was done in such a manner that relaxed my son, and felt more play-like to him.
The subsequent written report was of a very high standard, with clear and succinct recommendations for both home and school,and I have been able to use it as the foundation of his IEP. Not only that Nicky provides valuable follow up, both via email, or in my case, liasing with the SENCO at school. Hence she is a strong advocate for the child.
My son continued to have frequent OT sessions with her. These have not only improved his gross and fine motor abilities, but equally importantly his self esteem. He feels a sense of achievement in working with her. Nicky has a very patient, child centred approach to her sessions. My son can be difficult to engage, particularly if he knows a task is going to challenge him, but Nicky has a way of moving him past this.
As my son progressed, she said it would not be ethical to see him as frequently, as he had made significant progress.
I would whole heartedly recommend her without reservation."
