Frank – aged 11 – from Co Down, with Attention and Concentration difficulties.
“… He has improved greatly … he is a lot happier in school and is becoming more confident … “
Frank came to Cluas in Dublin in mid July 2013 with his parents for an Assessment and a week later Frank started a Cluas @ Home program.
The first stage was completed by mid-August, before school restarted. This was two hours each day for 15 days. Then in September and October Frank completed the next two stages of 8 days each and completed them by the end of October. Following a review at Cluas in December, Frank’s mother told us how the program had helped:
Initially Frank attended Cluas regarding his behaviour and attention span. He lacked concentration in all areas, was not able to follow instructions and suffered from aggression.
He has improved greatly in all of the above, with the exception of the odd outburst. His relationship with his siblings is better and he also communicates more with myself and his father.
He has started to mature a little and seems to ask lots of questions. He is a lot happier in school and is becoming more confident.
The most difficult time was probably the few days after each stage was completed.
