“Meave has consistently and cheerfully addressed my high-functioning autistic sons’ speech and social challenges by adapting her methods to suit his age and development.
Meave is a bright light in helping Theo build up his own communication ‘tool’ box, social awareness, self-organisation and self-confidence! By using a variety of games, exercises, tasks, conversations, social stories, and humour she has developed a valuable relationship of trust, respect and honesty which has helped him to feel anchored in an often confusing world. He will often save questions “to ask Meave…” when he is unsure of school-yard communications, spurring on his own attitudes of awareness and embracing the challenges of his ASD neurology.
Theo is a now self-aware teenager who is learning to be aware of others, communicate effectively and looks to the future as making his positive contribution to the world.”
“Meave was kindly, patient and fun during sessions with my daughter. She was always ready to adapt techniques when Gabriella found things challenging, and we are delighted with the dramatic difference the sessions have made. Thank you!”
“I contacted Meave to help my son with his stammer which was causing him some concern. Meave very quickly identified the problem and worked very closely with us to resolve.
I’m delighted to say that the techniques he has learned from Meave have worked and this has resulted in a real increase in his confidence. He regularly represents his school at events where he has to present publicly and he can now do this effortlessly.
Meave is friendly, approachable and made my son feel at ease from their first meeting. I felt that she had a genuine interest in helping and supporting him and the results have been fantastic.”
“Asking Meave to help us with our son’s speech was a great decision. She not only helped him but also helped us to understand how to talk to Riley, what games to play and how to interact to get the best out of him. She handed some helpful materials and recommended resources we still refer to. Riley loved sessions with Meave and we highly recommend getting in touch with her if you need help with your little one’s speech.”
“Meave has worked with our son for several months and has had a very positive impact on his speech and language. Meave is very knowledgeable, friendly and patient. She made learning fun by using play to help him with his speech. He looked forward to his sessions with her.
Meave always explained what she was doing and why and this made such a difference. Our son made great progress with her help. He is now a much more happy and confident boy.
We would highly recommend her.”
