“Our daughter is left-handed and was struggling with her handwriting, to the point that it was affecting her confidence at school. Caroline has such a kind, reassuring approach. She created a personalised treatment plan that completely changed our attitude to handwriting. The exercises she taught us have really helped strengthen our daughter’s hands and improve her dexterity. She is actively enjoying the process and has become so much more confident as she improves.”
Handwriting prior to session and then 6 months later.
“At 7 my son was really struggling to keep up in school. He showed lots of signs of Dyslexia and his handwriting was completely illegible. Despite being bright and understanding all the work set, he was increasingly falling behind and school didn’t seem to know how to help.
We had some great input from the NHS OT but the sessions were all in school and when the block finished he clearly needed more help but we didn’t know where to begin at home.
He only had a few sessions with Caroline, but they made a massive difference. He really liked the sessions and concentrated better than he ever had at home. She gave us a clear programme to follow between sessions with fun activities and reward charts to keep him motivated. We focused on doing 10-15 minutes home practice every day.
His progress was amazing – in a few weeks his writing was already much clearer and continuing to follow the advice after his sessions had ended his writing is now unrecognisable from 6 months ago. His confidence has increased massively and although he still finds reading, spelling and writing a massive challenge he is much more willing to have a go.”
“Caroline had a wonderful, warm, caring and gentle approach whilst working with my daughter on her handwriting skills. Caroline expertly engaged her with her child centred approach. Caroline is very knowledgeable about the complex skills required for handwriting and is able to assess these thoroughly and identify different ways to help. I wholeheartedly recommend Caroline if you have concerns regarding your child’s handwriting.”
