I was wondering whether anyone had experience with this clinic? On paper they look like they could be very helpful but it would be good to have a recommendation.

Our 5 year old son has just been turned down for help by camhs after an initial consultation because he doesn't meet their criteria for help. They do agree he needs help though and have suggested we find a private OT.

Our son has sensory issues, anxiety, selective eating and difficulties with self regulation causing defiance and hitting etc.

If anyone knows of someone else that could help we'd be grateful for the advice. We are based in Hampshire. Thanks

I do! We saw a lady there I think her name was Annelle or something like that for an assessment about a year ago. She was fabulous and gave us loads of advice. We didn’t continue seeing her as we are based in North London so she recommended another OT service (maximum potential) who my son (aged 4.5) has been seeing once per week since then. I can not recommend that type of OT (sensory integration) highly enough. It has been life changing for my son who has ASD and SPD. Annelle was really kind and knowledgeable and she even saw my son at a much discounted rate as it was an advisory session rather than an assessment for a program with her. Happy to answer any other questions you have

This is an excellent clinic. My DS (AS, dyspraxia, sensory issues) underwent therapy for a year or so here while we went through the EHCP process during which Anele's report was instrumental in him obtaining a placement at a specialist independent school. I would highly recommend her.

Great. Thank you for your comments. I'll give them a call tomorrow.

I hope things work out well for both of you x
