Mr C W Newbury


Hi Candy,

'I Just thought I would let you know that since I saw you in August to do my Post 16 Diagnostic assessment I have Began University, settled in and began lectures.

I want to say thank you firstly for your efficiently in all areas to make the report happen before I had to leave for university it has certainly meant I had less stress, but also thank you for making me feel welcome in your home and making me feel comfortable at all times during testing. I certainly learnt some things about myself during the few hours I spent with you and this is allowing me to prepare myself fully for the academic and personal challenges I will be facing over the coming three years.

The report fully explained my needs and additional support requirements that I will need throughout university despite them being very complicated and this is credit to yourself for managing to bring together a report that was so reflective of my personal difficulties and circumstances. I have received full DSA funded support and examination arrangements, and am also going through referral process for ADD. The University and teaching staff have all been so supportive since I arrived here. I feel very positive about the challenges of the next 3 years and I'm confident I will succeed and do well in my degree.

Thank you for all your time and support and you no doubt have had a huge role in enabling me to cope with my university education.'

Ms A W Tadley


'Thank you so much for the report. I just went through it with my mum and we are so happy with it.

It is such a relief to finally have a diagnosis.'

Miss D G Basingstoke


'We just wanted to say thank you for the assessment you completed with our son on Monday. Your relaxed and welcoming manner definitely helped put our son at ease for the assessment. We all feel that the having the dyslexia diagnosis will help to plan and support him in the future. He felt really positive after the assessment with you although somewhat exhausted for the rest of the day! Once again thank you for your help.'

Mrs T G Swindon


'My daughter was successful at her tribunal. They agreed she had difficulties with communication, reading and managing her finances. She will now receive PIP backdated to when they stopped her benefits last December. They quoted your assessment and report during their questioning. Thank you very much for your time and support.'

Mrs S B Windsor


'I'm delighted to let you know that our son did very well in his IGCSEs - six A*s and four As!

Your intervention made all the difference to his performance and we both continue to thank you so very much for it, as, without the extra time, he would most definitely have struggled to achieve his potential. Hoping you and yours are keeping well. Best wishes.'

Mrs J K Wokingham


'Candy. Many thanks for our daughter’s report. I feel like we’ve been stood in front of a locked door for years and then suddenly someone has just handed us a key. So thank you very much for the key – Let’s see what’s on the other side of the door! Thank you for unlocking our daughter’s mind. We’re very happy with the report so please do send over the final and signed versions.'

Mr J R Newbury


'Dear Candy, This is fabulous, thank you so much. If you are able to send final version over the weekend that would be fabulous as the SENCO has asked for it ahead of next week’s exam. I’m recommending you to a friend who is concerned that her 15-year son may have dyslexia. Huge thanks for all you have done to support our son, it is truly appreciated.'

Mrs D P Chipping Norton
