After years of suspecting our child had learning difficulties, we took her to see Chris at Educational Assessment Services. She takes a while to warm to people, but Chris quickly made her (and us) feel comfortable with his warm and welcoming ways. His assessment was incredibly thorough and the report eye-opening and helpful, featuring may ways we, her tutor and her school could further support her learning. I highly recommend Chris at Educational Assessment Services if you want to gain insight into your child's learning abilities. (2023)
I just wanted to say how amazing it has been to understand how our son 'ticks’. Your assessment turned my concerns into a celebration of his unique way of thinking, it has been amazing this year to see him grow and flourish. Knowing his brain works differently to others has been so good for building his confidence. Bex (January 2022)
I would like to thank you for your time and effort that you put into the assessment report you made, I really appreciate it. It has given me a better understanding of my learning disabilities, which I will definitely use during my future studies. It has also given me a better understanding of what I am capable of and it also made me more confident of my own abilities. Robin (August 2021)
I was recently assessed by Chris as an adult learner who has struggled with my self-esteem for many years but who has completed extensive university training in psychology. Chris was wonderful throughout the assessment with amazing warmth which created a space of safety for me during my assessment. I felt reassured and noticed his non-judgemental stance even when my brain knew I was doing badly. Also, the report made so much sense while outlining a long list of struggles but amazingly highlighted my strengths in a way I felt safe to share with those who need it to help me now.

Chris assessed my gifted son yesterday. Normally, he is shy in a new environment, but Chris was fantastic and made him feel at home. My son absolutely enjoyed the tests and the time he spent with Chris. As a mother of a gifted child, I have always wonder if my child's educational needs are being met at school, or if it would be more beneficial to let him skip a school year. Chris assessment answered all my questions and she pointed us in the right directions. My son and I are definitely more confident now to move forward. I can't say thank you enough Chris🙂 Lucy Laurentino (October 2019)
My son was assessed by Chris at his private practice, 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 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 his findings and it was obvious that he had really understood my child, which as parents, we were so grateful for. Having just received his extremely thorough and detailed report we are delighted at his recommendations for the school and how my son can go forth now, with the right support to achieve his full potential.
