Feedback from parents

Quote Icon Education staff are very caring, focussed and experienced. Observational skills are amazing enabling them to adapt and change already individualised learning to fully meet the child’s needs, achieving very positive results. My son started Young Epilepsy in September 2015, the progress so far has been very positive and quite unbelievable. Very reassuring and encouraging for us as parents for our son’s achievements to come.
