Our son Jonathan was born 12 weeks premature. He struggled with chewing and swallowing. He found tags and seams in his clothing unbearable and couldn’t tolerate his hair being brushed. He also had extreme separation anxiety. In the period of one year, he has gone from being an 8 year old that was unable to spell his name or identify letters consistently to a child that can read at Key Stage 2 Level. He is now outgoing and is able to eat a variety of textures. Mrs Hardman gave us a variety of tools to use to assist Jonathan that were easy to incorporate into our busy, daily lives. The exercises had a dramatic impact on his sensory issues. I can’t recommend Mrs. Hardman enough and feel that Jonathan would have been left behind without her assistance.

My son Henry has been seeing Linda Hardman for over a year now. He does various forms of exercise everyday with me and they have transformed him. He was shy, lacked confidence, had great trouble coping with school and he did not read or write. Now he can read almost anything and his writing is getting better everyday. He is confident and has lots of friends. I would highly recommend Linda Hardman and everything she does. My son’s progress has been nothing short of phenomenal and I’m sure this is because of the work Linda has done with him. Thank you.

Since using Linda to help and encourage our daughter in English and maths, we have seen an amazing improvement. Our daughter was summer born and we feel that, due to the little time spent in school, this had a serious impact in her learning and confidence. Now we could not be happier, with her academic improvement, top group in her class for English and maths and a seriously devoted ‘bookworm.’ Many thanks Linda

Linda is a lovely lady who is passionate about her work with children. She focuses on each child’s needs, taking into account their personality, making the sessions fun and enjoyable. Archie has made progress in many areas and I firmly believe that Linda’s input has been a major factor. Archie’s coordination has hugely improved since working with her and he has now mastered swimming – he found it very difficult to make his arms and legs do what he wanted them to do in the water! Linda has a lovely manner with the children and she helps them believe in themselves. Archie now approaches his homework with a positive attitude and remains calm if he finds something tricky – there are no more tears of frustration! I would recommend any one, child or adult, to work with Linda. She has a calming manner about her and an infectious zest for life!
We are grateful for your patience and efforts in helping our daughter, Amelia over the past few years. We have noticed a huge difference not only in her reading ability, which has gone from almost nil to a vastly improved level, but also her day to day self confidence and all round demeanour and self esteem.
