Caroline – aged 10 – from Dublin completed her Cluas @ Home Program.
“… We found the process to be very easy … Caroline was much more comfortable and relaxed in her familiar environment …”
Caroline completed an Assessment at Cluas in Dublin in late September 2012. In October her mother and father decided that she would complete a Cluas @ Home program, starting in October 2012.
A three stages program took place in October / November (3 weeks), December (2 weeks) and January (2 weeks). Caroline progress well through the three stages. Caroline’s mother, Kathy, told us how she had found the program:
“We went through the ‘At Home’ Cluas program in 2012/13. We found the process to be very easy to manage from home. Caroline was much more comfortable and relaxed in her familiar environment and with the chunk of your daily routine taken up with the listening program, it was definitely much better not to have to add on the travel time to and from the Cluas centre.
We found the support from the Cluas staff to be excellent. They were very thorough in training us to use the listening player and gave us a very comprehensive folder which made the exercises fool proof! They also checked to make sure everything went well. Caroline thrived throughout the experience and any emotional glitches she went through, the Cluas staff were on hand to re-assure us, that it was all part of the process.
We thoroughly recommend the ‘At Home’ program. Kathy said: “Really I’m not a technical person, and it was very easy to manage the whole thing.”
