What our clients say
We cannot recommend Firefly enough. We turned to Natalie for help when had to take our four year old son out of school in his first term because he couldn’t cope. Her experience working with children with ASD meant that she really understood his needs and was able to find a tutor who was right for him. She was always on hand to give us advice on suitable activities and support groups, and also helped us to find the right school. Our little boy has progressed enormously since he started his tutoring sessions and is now happy at his new school. Firefly played a huge part in getting him back on track, and for that we will always be grateful.
Thanks so much for your messages and calls to check in. Great experience with Natalie (tutor) and we just wrapped up last week. A (daughter) seems really confident and N put a lot together in a short period of time. Thank you so much for making it work for us and I feel so much better about sending into the year 2 onslaught.
I was worried that my son had special needs, but my doctor wasn’t really taking me seriously. Natalie guided me through taking my concerns further than just my GP and now my son is excelling in school with the support of a speech therapist that we wouldn’t have gotten without her.
I have worked with Natalie since 2011 and found her to be an expert in Special Educational Needs, as well as an innovative professional who can get the best out of pupils, and command the confidence of parents. Her specific training and experience in a range of needs is invaluable to a school which prides itself on specialist knowledge and the quality of its staff. Natalie has also used her network to assist in the recruitment of teachers and teaching assistants for Abingdon House School. She knows what Alpha Plus schools are looking for and takes time to learn about what the Head is looking for so that she can find the best match.
