Children and Parents

‘All children are naturally curious about the world and want to learn.  If a child has a hidden barrier to learning I get huge satisfaction in helping to find out what it is so the child can flourish,’ explains Educational Psychologist, Michael Lock.
‘I really enjoy helping parents and teachers find out how to help their children more effectively.  All parents have good intentions but sometimes, guided by the results of the assessment, a different approach works wonders.  I am overjoyed when I see the relief in the child and parent’s faces that things are nothing like as bad as their fears suggested and that there is a way forward.’

Michael gets enormous fulfilment out of his work, not least when he receives follow-up letters of thanks, such as, 'Thank you for the assessment the other day. I thought you were most kind, professional, courteous and accurate.'
