One local parent of a child with autism who recently had an educational and psychological assessment by Simon, shares her thoughts:

“Simon produced a very detailed report that captured our child’s needs and difficulties accurately and precisely. The report has been extremely useful to share with other professionals to provide them with a really clear, thorough picture of our child. Simon’s report has played an important role in informing how to best support our child’s learning and has formed an instrumental part of our child’s EHCP, ensuring that he receives the support he needs.”

Simon’s knowledge and experience in the field of children’s educational and psychological assessments are impressive.  He was recently involved in helping to develop an ADHD toolkit for teachers, by Bristol University, plus, he was recently selected to become an ‘AntWak Author’, after AntWak approached him asking his to share his expertise.
