"My son was
assessed by Chris in August 2016 at her private practise in Te Atatu, his
school had requested we undertake the assessment to establish what his learning
capabilities were and what some of his more quirky behaviours could be
attributed to. He was very excited to be having some one on one time with an
educational assessor and he very much enjoyed the learning challenges he
undertook. As a parent I was a little nervous that 3.5 hours may be a long time
for a just turned 8 year old, but my son thoroughly enjoyed himself and said he
was given breaks where needed. Being a very energetic child this would have
helped to get the best out of him. After the assessment, Chris took the time to
enlighten me on her findings and it was obvious that she had really understood
my child, which as parents, we were so grateful for. Having just received her
extremely thorough and detailed report we are delighted at her recommendations
for the school and how my son can go forth now, with the right support to
achieve his full potential."
"Chris’ assessment of our son was fantastic and provided insights that we have not noticed before and allowed us to understand why we were seeing certain behaviors, and will be of great use in dealing with issues at school. Chris’ recommendations are realistic and her referrals will greatly benefit our son. The testing was conducting in such a wonderful manner our son so enjoyed it he has asked if he can do it again. I would recommend her to anyone."
"Your innate ability to put our child at ease enabled what we feel was an accurate assessment of his abilities and ‘quirks’. As health professionals ourselves, we believe that your recommendations were thoughtful and appropriate. They have been beneficial to our family as a unit and our son as an individual. We would, without hesitation, recommend your services to another parent who is seeking an assessment to know if their child is gifted, is looking for some guidance on how to best nurture their childs strengths, to help in areas they may be struggling and to assist in advocating for the child in an educational setting. Your follow-up service was professional, prompt, thoughtful and encouraging to our child. Thank you for your insights and for helping our family understand our son better and for us to see a clear way forward to a happy and rewarding future."
