Nicky Bament was fantastic with my son, she was so patient & friendly, & he quickly came out of his shell. The assessment was really thorough & we now have lots of recommendations to work with, both at home & school. I would highly recommend Nicky to anyone, thank you so much!
Amazing service, has helped my children so much with physical issues surrounding DCD. I would highly recommend both OT services and DCD assessments. My sons have weekly sessions and my son recently said ” I love going to see Nicky on a Saturday she makes me smile and feel happy”. I think that says it all 🙂
I would definitely recommend Nicky Bament as an excellent Occupational Therapist, as she has had the patience of a Saint with my autistic son. From day one of my sons noted mobility issues … dyspraxia, hand/eye co-ordination etc, she has advised and guided us to the point that my son, who had severe handwriting issues, has caught up to his peers at school. She was honest at the onset and my son improved much quicker than anticipated which was a bonus and she worked wonders on his fine and gross motor skills, (such as catching balls, movement etc … thus he now has more confidence in his abilities and stamina). Got to lastly mention, she went directly into school and made a report on what they should and should not be doing as my son was often hiding under tables because he was avoiding writing because of stabbing pains in his hands but he was only 5 so did not understand. Her detailed report was given to school who implemented the changes, different writing equipment etc which stopped the hand issues and now he is achieving his full potential. Thank you … you are amazing!
