Where's the Evidence?


I had belief and trust in the service during a very confusing and unclear time in my life as a parent. I felt that I was doing something for my child to help her. Jean was so willing to help my child she really did go that extra mile. Above all I felt that she understood and listened to my concerns and showed me great empathy.

My son attended Melville Occupational therapy over 10 years ago. We saw a vast improvement in his school work. He became confident in his reading and writing skills. He is now a happy adult and loves his job.

The sensory work that your team did with my daughter greatly improved her in every area. The attention that my daughter got from Jean improved her confidence and she is willing to have a go mentally!

Our son is now much stronger in his will, finished tasks and his self esteem is much better. His concentration has improved. He is much more grounded, grasping concepts and improving in the areas of literacy and numeracy.

We are so pleased to have found Margot she prepared the sessions and they where well thought out and specific to my child’s needs. Margot was able to bring him back on track by gentle steering rather than aggressive discipline. Care was taken in the words she used respectful, helpful but never patronizing. She presented the session in a way that made learning fun. The session sits well with our chosen Steiner schooling and our general parenting approach they genuinely do care. Thank you for giving my child the opportunity to experience the wonderful work that you do.

He is a calmer boy, much less aggressive and reactive; he doesn’t stand out as ‘the angry boy’ anymore. He has more self control and is less extreme in his emotions, he can calm down quicker than before and without running off.

After treatment my child has greatly improved. Thank-you for your kindness and willingness to listen, I found that very comforting. All of the staff communicates well to both parents and children.
