Don’t wait. Early intervention has been proven to help children achieve their best for both immediate and later success. In general these difficulties do not just ‘go away’. Your child is not having these difficulties because they are lazy.

A parent does not cause their child to have these difficulties, however a parent with specific advice and support can help their child to achieve success.
