Jett found school life to be quite challenging until we came to the Alison Lawson Centre. With his hard work and dedication Jett is now reading and writing at the level that is required of him. Jett’s confidence both in schooling and with friends has escalated and we are finding a much happier little man as a result of his treatment. I highly recommend anyone considering this treatment to give it a go. We found it absolutely priceless and are confident Jett’s future will be a bright one.
After many years of searching for answers for Ruby’s learning difficulties, it was such a relief to have her assessed by Fiona to find that the Alison Lawson Centre would be able to help her. Ruby was an anxious girl, who didn’t like to complete tasks in front of strangers. Fiona and Kirsty quickly made her feel comfortable within a very supportive learning environment and tutor/student relationship. The program was amazing! It was tailored to exactly what Ruby needed to do and learn as she progressed through the 10 sessions. As Ruby’s eye settled, and she recognised a difference in her ability to see, remember and learn, her confidence just soared. Fiona and Kirsty were extremely gentle in their approach, but with high expectations. Expectations that Ruby proudly strived to reach.They both took as much time as necessary for Ruby to understand what she was doing and they gave her genuine feedback on her achievements and progress. We will be forever grateful for the work Fiona and Kirsty did with Ruby. Ruby now has the opportunity to be the girl she is meant to be and to achieve her dreams and goals. We cannot thank you enough.
I would recommend ALCV to anyone who has visual dyslexia; the therapy has improved both of my children’s lives for the better, with the thoughts of failure behind them. They can both look forward to a better future knowing they are no longer held back with a reading disability and the embarrassment and failure they felt. My daughter received a job recently after she was asked to read at a job interview; she stated “thank goodness for ALCV”, I think that says it all!
My daughter has struggled with all aspects of life. Listening, understanding, co-ordination, social skills, motor skills, concentration, and up to this point she has always felt alone and left out. From nine months old I knew something was not quite right, but bi- annually hearing and eye tests from birth though age 8 have all come back normal and over and over Chloe was put into the category of just not being all that bright.
As she came to the end of grade 1 she was falling behind so much more and becoming a real struggle. Chloe had a friend with similar problems who had just undergone the treatment at the Allison Lawson clinic and I could not believe the changes. Investigating further I got on to the Website and looked up symptoms and well she had every single one.
So that day she was booked in for her assessment.
The treatment was intense but as a very desperate parent who would do anything for my child I knew this was it.
4 months on and Chloe has already caught up on most of her schooling now taking part in the class room activities with all the other children. Her memory and concentration have improved dramatically and is helping in her everyday life.
I can not thank the Allison Lawson clinic enough.
My daughter was very hesitant to start the program but Fiona was fantastic with her. She was made to feel comfortable as soon as she walked in and looked forward to coming back everyday. Her memory has improved and now she has the task of relearning everything she has missed in her early schooling.
Before starting the program for 7 years we received the same results, this is not just from the school but also from the extra tutoring classes he was attending. He was always one year behind his classmates, and over time he was getting upset and lacking confidence .
One day I came across a piece in current affairs, I googled and my son ticked all the boxes for Dyslexia. We finished the program in December 2015. In his first term in 2016 as a year 8 student he passed every subject, his lowest mark was 60% and that was because he was still adjusting. He was retested again and got 88% and this is without any further tutoring. He’s become this confident young man and who seems to know everything. He was voted as class captain and had no hesitation when he presented his speech.
At the being of this term (term2) we attended the parent/teacher interview, and all teachers mentioned he is a very a talented student academically he is doing so well, something that was unheard off for the last several years. We are so grateful to The Alison Lawson Centre for making this happen. Thank you for your support and guidance.
