Unlimited phone and email consultation with Melanie Curry.

At least half or more of the programme time will include a parent or support person participating in helping the child with the new skills and techniques.
"I'm noticing Oscar is interested in reading everything around him - like signs etc which he has never seemed to even notice before. He is much more focused and present. A very chatty and engaged little boy. I'm even getting a breakdown of his day at school - also a first!! I am really impressed with the difference in him, Melanie! Thank you for unlocking his gifts. Loving seeing him so happy and confident." Oscar's Mum, May 2016
