HOW HAVE WE HELPED PEOPLE!
“Nearly three years ago, our son Jake struggled dreadfully with communication and social skills. He found school difficult and sometimes frightening, with its busy environment and routine changes. Since then he has had extensive help via a Social Skills group and 1-1 sessions. Now, he is a happy outgoing 6 year old boy with lots of friends. He is happily settled at school and adores acting, singing, and dancing.
His therapy continues, now on a reduced level, but is still important for his self-esteem as he matures.”

“Our daughter Chloe, is 17 and has not attended school for
2 years. She has been bullied and teased. Because she is a person with Aspergers Syndrome, it is dicult for Chloe to make immediate sense of her environment; everyone and everything presents an overwhelming thread. Her social skills are impaired and being part of a peer group is too painful for her. Attending a social skills group, working individually with a specific therapist has given Chloe feelings of personal control, and she is now making steps in the right direction.”

“I was first diagnosed with dyspraxia when I was a child, and received a lot of occupational and speech therapy. However my big issues still are how to make friends, keeping friendships, and not interrupting people. Now I am 37 years old and have been diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome. I have benefited from being part of a social communication group run by Conquer and Learn. It makes a positive difference to my life. For the first time I have kept my job, and am learning to get along with people. I feel more confident and I feel part of a group.”
