To discover your child has dyslexia is a shock, maybe a disappointment, maybe a relief but it is the end of a confusing path for a parent and child. Maz was recommended to me by a friend who had previously used his services.
The assessment was tough and emotional for my daughter, but he listened and communicated with her in such a relaxing, professional and supportive way. The process was so calm, and he created an atmosphere which my daughter felt part of and not just a person being assessed. The results were written as if he had spent days with her and the findings and recommendations were amazing. We did have to analyse if we could afford the cost, but I now have a document which will firstly give my daughter an understanding and explanation for her struggles and secondly a guide for her school to support her. Someone said to me if your car was not functioning right, you would get it diagnosed and repaired and the bill would be expensive, but you would pay it. So, to do it for my daughter is value for money.
Maz for me was a light at the end of the tunnel. He has articulated and documented a report which has captured my daughter’s dyslexia and given recommendations that will help her for life.
Thank you Maz for listening to our concerns, knowing the best way forward, and supporting lsabelle. Thank you
My daughter (aged 12) had been struggling at school with headaches and concentration so I asked Maz to assess her to see if there might be an underlying difficulty. Since the assessment was carried out during lockdown, everything was done on Zoom but that didn’t cause any issues. My daughter said she thought Maz was really friendly and he was very understanding especially as it was online, and he clarified anything whish she hadn’t understood. She said that if she had been nervous about the assessments (which she wasn’t) Maz would quickly have put her at ease.
From a parent’s point of view, all contact with Maz was great, from emails to phone calls to the final feedback on Zoom. The report itself was very comprehensive and Maz was also available afterwards to run me through it and take any questions. So, all in all, a great experience end to end for both me as the parent and my daughter.
Just to keep you updated, I have worked through this report with L (read and explained) and she is very thankful for all the effort and considerations you have included.
I think L absolutely feels a sense of relief to hear a professional outline the help he may call upon moving forward in her life.
I am going to help her forward this report on to the people she would like to have access to.
Maz, from myself- thank you again for your extensive efforts- I wish you were here to see the relief/smile on her face
