“My son was diagnosed with ADHD, depression & anxiety disorder at age 12, upon encountering difficulty adapting to school life at secondary level.
He subsequently struggled through school, and eventually dropped out of school in 3rd year.
We were introduced to Dr. Naoisé O’Reilly after several teachers, counsellors and guidance counsellors were unable to help. That set us on a journey that would turn my son’s life around.
On our first meeting with Naoisé, I was instantly won over by her warmth, manner & ability to communicate with him where others had failed. Over a period of time I could see that he was taking on board different things she said to him about his education , which up until then he “couldn’t care less about”!
Naoisé put in place a panel of wonderful teachers through home education & he eventually took on 6 subjects in the Leaving Cert. He has now gone on to study Music Performance & is the happiest I have seen him in a longtime. Naoisé showed him that just because you don’t fit in a box & learn the way others do, doesn’t mean you can’t dream & reach your goals. I tell him everyday that his first paycheque is hers!!! ” Irish Mother
