Cheryl's knowledge and understanding has been invaluable for myself and my family. I have 3 children age 17,12 and 10 she has always listened and given advice and strategies. In particular helping with my 10yr old , helping with filling in DLA forms and attending meetings at school being my advocate. I can't recommend her highly enough. She just gets it and genuinely cares. Amazing lady.

I have worked with Cheryl for a number of years and have been thouroughly supported in how best to help ASD children in a mainstream setting. Over the years, we have worked together with several ASD children, all with very different needs. Cheryl has shown me strategies for tailoring resouces and the classroom environment to be more ASD friendly and has helped me adapt planning and provide tailored interventions. She remains positive whatever the situation and I have greatly benefitted from working with her.

I attended a Time Out for adults session today. Cheryl had put together an amazing session. I learnt some great and quick techniques for remaining calm. I really enjoyed the mindful session and the personal affirmations.

Cheryl has given me invaluable support with autistic children in my Year 1 class. She also taught several Confident kids sessions and all the children benefitted from both the calming and fun activities. Highly recommended!

Natalie Morley
We found Cheryl to be highly knowledgeable, and having a great connection with our boys. She was instrumental in helping calm them and getting them used to ABA. We are extremely happy with her help and advice.

Cheryl is more than another person with resources or experience, undoubtedly she has these and much more, but what makes her stand out is a special understanding and appreciation of a deeper level of the individual with autism. Our son was diagnosed with nonverbal severe low functioning autism, he struggled to communicate his needs and frustrations, he lacked the ability to sit and focus long enough to learn, and he played but always alone. At the time we heard of ABA Therapy and we hired Cheryl because of her good references and wonderful disposition. Immediately Luke reacted to her, and through positive reinforcement and other methods, she opened up a world for us as a family. We now consider Cheryl part of our family, we share all of Luke’s accomplishments with her, and we are grateful for the immense gift of fun, laughter, patience, communication and understanding both Luke and we have learned. This is why we confidently and wholeheartedly recommend her.

Emrys and Peggy Ryan
Cheryl offers practical advice based on the individual, rather than the diagnosis. She is an expert in her field and offers solutions that are not obvious.

Lucy Wyatt
Cheryl is a great source of knowledge. She helped me understand that every child is different, what triggers to look out for, how to simplify instructions, how to engage children in activities. In fact give me the confidence to put all this into practice every day at school. Her ideas change the way you think and work. Keep it up Cheryl it really works!
