Mariam Tariq, SEN parent, 2020:
We felt that the boys were struggling so much in school and didn't know why. John the EP identified their strengths and weaknesses, prior to taking their history as part of the report- it was a couple of pages of recommendations of how we could help our children progress in different areas, and suggested ASD.
We now have taken John’s report to other professionals such as a psychologist who can carry out a full assessment and diagnose our boys with ASD. Both of my boys have been diagnosed with ASD thanks to John Pugh. I would not have known this if this was not suggested in the report. It's helped us now to understand their needs in a day to day basis- it has turned our life’s around with them positively, as we now know how to help them and have provided this information to school.
The school now are also trying to help our children with the strategies suggested by John Pugh, understanding the new diagnoses of ASD.
Thank you for all your help honesty and support!”
