    All testimonials taken from my Facebook page : Sabrina Welfare recommends Dyslexia Support Lancashire. · Helen was brilliant at getting my son diagnosed with Dyslexia and providing support and targets that my son could work on in school. The report was very thorough and easy to understand. Helen was really calm and patient with my son during the screening process and he felt at ease with Helen. Overall I am really pleased I chose Helen to do it and would highly recommend. Thank you Ruth Shelley Roberts recommends Dyslexia Support Lancashire. 27 January 2021 · Helen has been invaluable in helping our daughter get the help she so desperately needs. Without Helen's report we would not have been taken seriously. We are so grateful for the time and effort she put into such a thorough and personalised report. Helen has been the catalyst to move things forward for us. Thank you so much! Sarah Farrell recommends Dyslexia Support Lancashire. 13 January 2021 · Helen has some great ideas and so much knowledge on how to help children who struggle with mainstream learning. Even if your child is not dyslexic or diagnosed with a particular difficulty, ;ll bet that her methods will help them (and you) to breakdown tasks and find achievement, especially during lockdown and all the stress that goes with it. Krista Reynolds recommends Dyslexia Support Lancashire. 26 August 2020 · Helen was fantastic with my 8 year old needs assessment. She really made us both feel comfortable and helped us understand the process as well as the results. Helen also went above and beyond to ensure the whole process was Covid safe. I would highly recommend Helen and Dyslexia Support Lancashire and will definitely be using Helen;s services again. Emma-Louise Anderson recommends Dyslexia Support Lancashire. 1 September 2020 · We contacted Helen during lockdown to have our son assessed. She was able to provide plenty of information about the process and the new COVID way. Everything was managed well and she really got to know our son and could see his struggles. Helen works in a child centred way which is lovely to see and she was able to build a relationship with our son to help him get through the assessment. The report was fantastic with lots of suggestions and suggestions for him as he gets older. We would highly recommend Helen and Dyslexia Support Lancashire!
