I knew instantly that she understood

“Hi Naoisé,
Please find a few lines below. I just had a meeting with my daughter’s teacher and school special needs co-ordinator. They are astounded at her progress and her confidence and restedness inside.

Thank you so much,

Much love,

Her mother.

Six months ago I was a very distressed mother having just discovered that my 10 year daughter was virtually illiterate. She attends a Steiner school and because they progress more slowly in main subjects such as english and maths and focus a lot on creative work such as music and art, her dyslexia went unnoticed.

When it began to dawn on me I was shocked because she is so bright and I didn’t really know which way to turn. The New Zealand system of support for Dyslexia was very complicated and she would have to under go days of intense examinations.

And then I did know which way to turn – thankfully I knew Dr. Naoisé O Reilly, who had helped our business make a huge shift the year before. I contacted Naoisé and her support has changed our lives.

Naoisé spent an hour with my daughter over Skype and I knew instantly that she understood her and her unique way of learning that did not fit into mainstream learning. This was the biggest relief. And our journey began. It all seemed quite simple what Naoisé sent to us to focus on. Simple word games, exercises, fun things, writing projects. Just a little most evenings. And then after six months – whoosh all the pieces of the puzzle game together. The building blocks Naoisé had been providing connected and my daughter took an enormous leap forward in her reading and spelling. It is a continual journey where there is no longer concern but the knowing that it is a unique journey for her, and she is being supported by an amazing individual, Naoisé, who not only understands and can see through her eyes, but can provide the tools to navigate the way to a full and rich life of learning and discovery for her. I am so so so grateful. Thank you Naoisé.”
