Loved by Schools and Families

We feel very lucky to have found The Owl Centre to support our almost 4 year old son. With an ASD diagnosis on the day of lockdown, we were so worried we wouldn't be able to get the support he needed but thankfully we got straight in touch with Nicola who found us an amazing speech therapist who then suggested an Autism Consultant, Leslie-Ann, who completely changed things for our son and the way we deal with his autism. She took the time to help us as parents and empower us to help our son. We have seen such progress in him over the last 6 months. We have used The Owl Centre for all our therapy needs, from initial assessments to speech and occupational therapy and Autism Support. They take a holistic approach to your child's therapy where all your therapists will liaise to make sure the approach is consistent. We can't thanks them all enough for their support.

Polly's expertise has made the whole process of sorting out our son's stammer so much easier. Polly has such a wonderful rapport with children, making them feel instantly at ease. Polly has been with us every step of the way, we could not have done it without her. I would definitely recommend the Lidcombe programme and was delighted our son made such rapid progress. Worth every penny.

Working in education I know how long referrals through CAMHS can take and I didn’t feel this was something that could wait up to two years. So to have a response immediately and an appointment within weeks was amazing. I am happy with the care my daughter received and the treatment is going well.
