What our customers say

We love receiving messages like this about a member of our team.

[Also] Carly the OT who came out to [my child’s] school was amazing!!! She gave me some really useful info/knowledge and resources to research. I went away feeling like I had a little clearer understanding of how [my child’s] brain works and how I can further support her. Please pass on my thanks.

Parent Feedback

Another fabulous comment received about one of our exceptional OTs; Carly 

Just a personal note to say thank you again for attending [my child’s] Annual Review with the others. It was lovely see you all there as people who have worked with [my child] this last year, on the same page with [my child] and listening to your comments about [them].

If we ever need to use Thrive again either through the LA or privately for reassessment, without a doubt you will be the first person I think of!
