Read here some of our case studies of our various programs at Newberry Park.
Our family resides in London UK. We travel back to South Africa for the Summer holidays.
We decided the one year to start Mike on a 1:1 home-based programme with Newberry Park during our Summer vacation. The results in such a short space of time were so wonderful that we requested to continue the programme when we got back to London.
Thanks to the 1:1 programme, we have peace of mind our son is still in a mainstream school and he gets his assistance from Newberry Park in the afternoons. With his language improving, it has just made all our lives so much easier.
This programme would normally entail a trained tutor who goes to the student's house every day.
In this case, due to the geographical separation, the biggest obstacle faced was teaching articulation over Zoom/Skype. This was overcome by requesting the family to purchase certain products and we were able to train the family members on how to use them correctly.
We had our child enrolled at another school and for the first 2 years he made some nice progress; however, after that everything started to hit flat spots and things were looking very bleak. The stress and anxiety that this put us under were immense and we felt like we were back at square 1. All we want for ourselves and Tommy is stability and somewhere where he will continue to grow.
We went through to Newberry Park and were delighted with what we heard regarding all the programme offerings. Tommy is now part of the 2 on 1 programme and his progress is amazing. He is paired up with a fellow pupil and they have their dedicated teacher who guides them through all programmes and activities. That individual attention that he is receiving has made all the difference.
We have been on cloud 9 since moving to Newberry Park, knowing our Tommy belongs to something and isn’t just a number, we are forever grateful.
We are a young family who just received the diagnosis that our 2 and a half-year-old son is Autistic. This news was extremely difficult for my wife and I. We were extremely emotional and had no idea as to what the way forward was for the family and Nate.
We then met with Juliet at Newberry Park and she gave us hope.
With the expertise of Juliet, we are now focused on Learning to Learn skills while also doing requesting skills. Since Nate has started improving on these skills and he can now request and get his needs known, we have seen a change in his behaviour. He is now also able to follow through on instructions, make eye contact and actually enjoy learning and school.
