We took our 14 year old son, who is dyslexic, to Cluas in August 2014. During the previous 6 months we had a number of discussions with his school in which it was brought to our attention that our son had serious problems concentrating in class. Additionally, we were told that he was disrupting the class because he was also distracting some of his fellow pupils. 

We were looking for a solution and discovered Cluas on the internet. At first we were a bit sceptical but as we did additional research and read more about the approach we became more comfortable with the program and decided to give it a try. 

Once our son got used to wearing the headphones for 2 hours at a time the program went very smoothly. 

The results have been very positive.  At our most recent meetings with his teachers 50% of them, without our prompting, commented on our son’s improved concentration and ability to listen in class. The others, when asked, gave us similar feedback. We asked all of his teachers if he was still distracting the other pupils – we got an emphatic ‘no’ to the question. In fact we got no negative feedback from any of his teachers. 

Many thanks to Pascal and Ronan.
