I was concerned about aspects of
my daughter’s learning and performance at school. She has some areas of real strength which masked the difficulties she was experiencing and I knew she was slipping under the radar at school and would not be identified as having problems worth testing. I think parents are often very tuned in with their children and intuitively know that there are aspects of their learning which cause particular problems. It is for this reason that I contacted Essential Psychology. My daughter was seen promptly and professionally by Jo (Bartholomew) and she made a rather shy teenager comfortable and relaxed throughout the whole testing process. Around a week after the evaluation we received a very thorough and detailed report confirming that my daughter did indeed have some problem areas and would benefit from specific support at school. What is also great is that my daughter can see that she is excelling in some areas; this has been really important for her self-confidence. The report concluded with some excellent learning resource links that I can use to support my daughter outside of the classroom. Sometimes we want answers to problems that we can’t define but are certain exist. Jo Bartholomew and Essential Psychology provided those answers.
