We specialise in working with autistic people and their families. We may be one of the only small companies in the area that have mentors who are themselves autistic amongst our staff, indeed amongst our company owners.
MJ – Family of Autistic Student
Jane and Joyce have been working with my son T, since September 2019, supporting him in his studies. Building a good working relationship with T is key to a successful outcome, and initially I was a little concerned how weekly support would work as previously he had 1:1 support for a large proportion of the time. My worries were needless as both Jane and Joyce worked hard to build a rapport with Tom that has seen him grow in confidence in his work, and really look forward to his sessions, which recently due to the lockdown have been all via zoom. Even this didn’t phase T and he has continued to work with them through the summer.
This summer work has involved Jane devising an individual working plan based on his dissertation brief, that has included reviewing articles, and visiting relevant online exhibitions and museums together and discussing them. He would never have been able to organise himself to do this without Jane’s support. He is now in an excellent position to continue his dissertation when university recommences.
Joyce plays a very different, yet equally important role in T’s support. T loves to talk, but does find social interaction challenging, and frustrating. Having a special person who understands how he thinks to have a good old chat with has been perfect for T. He has been able to talk about things that have been worrying him, such as an acquaintance passing away. All in all the support provided by Jane and Joyce has been invaluable. Thank you very much.
