Sheilagh Blyth is a highly professional, well prepared, knowledgeable and clear presenter. Her day course on Handwriting was outstanding and teachers’ comments and evaluations were highly appreciative. We are already looking forward to her next course.

As a Paediatric Occupational Therapist recently transferring from the public sector into independent practice, I have lots to experience clinically but none whatsoever in setting up and managing a business. Sheilagh is consistently encouraging, understanding of my learning style, sends me great resources and helps me set realistic targets.

I was at your talk at the TES SEN show and of all the seminars (and I went to eight) yours was the best in terms of content and presentation. Keep up the wonderful enthusiasm for such an important part of a child’s education that causes so much stress for many of our children.

Sheilagh has the warmest and easiest of styles both for the parent and child. Ollie instantly felt at ease with Sheilagh and the handwriting assessment went very quickly for him as Sheilagh engaged him quickly and made it fun. Sheilagh quickly built a rapport with Ollie and we would recommend her in a flash!

Your ‘Handwriting Programme on Skype’ service has helped homework becoming much less of an issue for my daughter, as it was in the past. She has gained self confidence and enjoyment of writing rather than approaching it with dread and rather than just dismissing all her handwriting as ‘rubbish’ she is now able to note areas of neatness and skill which has built on her self esteem.

Handwriting for children testimonial 1

Hi Sheilagh, I just wanted to thank you for boosting Fraser’s confidence and writing when he was in year 3. Today he got his GCSE results and got a staggeringly amazing 10 A* with A**(9) in Maths and English. He was so anti school and struggling until your intervention when it all turned around for him. Thank you.

My child was struggling with handwriting, we worked through the The Early Handwriting Toolkit Book together at home while on a waiting list for OT. We found it a very easy to follow systematic approach which allowed us to identify what his issues are and gave us exercises and strategies to help us support him. I’ve shown it to his school and they too have bought their own copy.
