My son, 7yrs old attended the Alison Lawson Clinic, after struggling with literacy based tasks. Even with my experience as a primary teacher, I just could not find strategies to help him progress with reading, writing, spelling or retaining information.
After attending the 10 weekly sessions, my son has moved up 6 reading levels, writes lengthy stories and is able to retain information needed for future lessons. He has gone from having low self-esteem and not wanting to complete tasks such as reading, to being a happy, confident child who is happy to sit up and read his new chapter books each night.
As I sit to write this, I cannot find the words to express my gratitude for this program or these wonderful women who implement it. How do you say thank you enough for making a child feel good about themselves, for helping him to progress, when I could not- you can’t! All I can do is share my story and let you know that I am a true advocate for the Alison Lawson Clinic and would recommend, speaking with them about yourself or your child! We will be forever grateful to these true professionals, who make this program available to people like my son!

Improved reading. Improved attitude to homework. I can definitely see an improvement. Laura says the words are now bigger on the page. I believe that I will continue to see improvement in Laura’s work due to The Alison Lawson treatment. I am very glad that we did this – money well spent.
Worth the effort and worth persevering with the homework. The investment will and has shown immediate dividends. Thanks Louisa.

Tracey Heslop treated my son Daniel with the LASD unit and treatment. He complied with the program even though the first couple of weeks it was really difficult for Daniel (aged 9). Daniel had issues with both eyes and needed a couple of extra sessions than normal to correct both eyes. We are so thrilled with the results. Daniel is reading really well now, and the treatment also helped bring him up to speed in a lot of other areas. Daniel doesn’t get tired reading anymore, and rarely makes an error reading aloud.
Daniel is happy that the letters don’t swirl around all over the page and now loves to read! We have continued to see the benefits 12 months on. I would recommend Tracey to anyone, any age. She was so encouraging with Daniel in every achievement.
Reading is a gift and a delight and should be a pleasure. We had looked at other programs, but none of them offered the permanent results that the Alison Lawson Clinic did.

Completing the treatment at The Alison Lawson Centre QLD has turned my son from a child who was unable to read fluently, refused to read in front of others and could not remember sounds and blends; into one who reads every night, volunteers to stand up in class and read and spell with almost 100% accuracy.
I cannot believe the incredible improvement.
His teacher has noticed massive improvements with his confidence, writing and reading and with a few refinements to bring him up to speed, he will be in the top half of his class rather than the bottom.
Thank you time and time again.

To Whom it may concern
A brief letter of recommendation regarding Mrs Lawson and her treatment especially of children with reading and visual difficulties. I can highly recommend her and her treatment of children, having sent two of my children, Stephen now aged 15 and Richard aged 13 to her care. They both had severe reading problems with ongoing learning difficulties. With her careful patience and care, advice and treatment they were given 6-10 courses of treatment and have both progressed very well and are now reading normal for their age and their consequent learning difficulties are gone.
Thus in conclusion I highly recommend her both from a clinically point of view, in my work in the medical profession, and also on a personal level because of her treatment for what I consider to be quite difficult cases.
