Valerie – aged 13 – from Monaghan, with Auditory Processing difficulties.
“… Her concentration has improved and she is a visibly more confident student …”
Karen, Valerie’s mother, decided to come to Cluas in Dublin in early July 2013 for an Assessment and following this Valerie started a Cluas @ Home program the next day.
Her three-stage program of two hours each day was completed in July (for 15 days) and in September (for 8 days) and in October (the final 8 days). Karen told us how Valerie was doing:
Prior to the Cluas program, my daughter would not have had obvious hearing or processing difficulties. But she did say very often, “Wait. What?” Also, she had some behaviours which could be considered badgering or impatient, even a little hyper.
She told me one day that she felt she had difficulty hearing. I knew her hearing itself was fine so suspected it was a processing issue. A Cluas evaluation confirmed this to be accurate and we commenced the program.
What a difference! After the first period of the program I noticed the impatience had diminished. After the second segment it was gone altogether. Soon the whole family noticed that Valerie was no longer hyper.
We are now finished with the program and we are looking at big differences. I would say my daughter is happier, more relaxed and the ‘”Wait. What?”‘ moments have all but disappeared. Her concentration has improved and she is a visibly more confident student.
I am so grateful for this positive, non-drug, life changing treatment.
