We have seen a great improvement in Mat’s reading and writing and his willingness to do his homework and read his books. His concentration levels have increased dramatically and we no longer have to argue over reading a book.
Your service is wonderful. Mathew has loved coming to the centre because he said you are both very nice and really kind. The way you speak to the children is very encouraging and supportive. Don’t change a thing.

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.

Aiden, now 11 years, has recently finished in the top 3% in Year 5 NSW in the University of NSW ENGLISH competition.
Connor, now 12 years, is reading so many books a week I have to go to the library on a Saturday and get a stack to last him until the next weekend. He still needs a lot of work on his spelling but he’s working on it.
They are continuing to improve. It’s great. Just wanted to touch base and say ‘Thanks’.

Our son Hamish attended the clinic one year ago, in year 5 at primary school. Our original referral came from a team mates parents who had similar issues with their son. Without question it has been one of the best decisions my wife and I have made. Hamish’s grades have gone from a low D in English to a mid to high C. His maths improved as he was able to read and comprehend the questions moving from a D to the possibility of a B by the end of this year. Three other subjects have jumped up a mark as his confidence and ability grew during and following the course. He is closing the gap between his potential and ability.
Please don’t misunderstand us it’s been a consistent effort to get this far with more to come, but the fact is he would never have made these gains if it wasn’t for Vanessa and Maria correcting Hamish’s eye problems and giving us the tools to progress. My wife and I are quite confident Hamish can enter high school without being at an academic or confidence disadvantage.
I would like to extend a big thank you to the team and encourage anyone to invest the time to see if the program can help their child.

The treatment seems to have worked beyond my expectations. The quality of the remedial side of the treatment was an unexpected surprise and has given us and Ally the tools required for future learning. One of the main things this has given Ally is confidence and I thank you for this.
