The sessions are excellent practice in helping my son to manage distractions, focus and listen to instructions. The individual attention is ideal, as is the fact that my son is at home for the sessions.

Considering we’re in a severe lockdown, the sessions are online, school attendance is terribly limited, and my son has barriers to learning, I think it’s amazing that he’s managed to get through sessions from Jan. 4th until March 2nd.

In addition, my son had his own CAMHS assessment online this week; he completed the whole hour of activities with a clinician, who he had never met before. It wasn’t easy for him at all. He got anxious at times, and distracted, but was able to recover quickly each time. My husband was really impressed that our son had managed the assessment.

I think that the experiences gained from doing the Relax Kids sessions made it significantly easier for my son to complete this assessment. Not only that, but the sessions are giving him an excellent training in learning a form of discipline that is needed for good concentration.

Finally, I’m noticing how useful it is for him to be experiencing the benefits of being able to repair any mishaps or breaks in concentration. These breaks are dealt with real empathy but firmly by Roy. This is really helping to build my son’s confidence up, as he learns to come back and try again (e.g to not give up at the first sign of difficulty).

Thank you Roy for all your hard work – it’s making a difference!
