I would have no hesitation in recommending Denise.  Her reports are affirming, readable, full of practical advice and excellent value for money.'

'The assessment experience:

The process was extremely smooth, clear and easy to understand from setting up the appointment to attending it. My son was made to feel extremely comfortable and although the assessment was long, he came away feeling positive knowing that Denise would do her absolute best to help him. We are very grateful to Denise for her positive support - it is such a refreshing change.

The assessment report:

The report was extremely helpful and identified clearly the issues that needed to be addressed and how to move forward.

The forms provided:

the forms were helpful and Denise went out of her way to provide all the tools needed to apply for the relevant help.''

DSA Assessment for 20 year old

"I dropped my daughter off for her  assessment and she enjoyed it a lot. We found out she has moderate dyslexia and it is such a relief. The school has been helpful and started putting Denise's recommendations in place. We have started playing some of the games at home she suggested to help 'Sofia' with spellings. Now she looks forward to getting her weekly spelling list and I still can't quite believe it!"

'As parents we feel Denise has made a huge difference to 'Chloe's' confidence and has helped her find strategies for the future. During SAT's, Denise was able to work on exam strategies and support me negotiating appropriate Access Arrangements.'

(From a parent whose daughter is performing within an average band at school, but whose measured IQ I found to be above average, with underlying phonological processing weakness. She is a well compensated dyslexic, and performance is therefore below expectations!)

Hi Denise, 

Thank you so much for J's report, it is amazingly thorough! It is great to have my suspicions confirmed and be able to move forward being able to target J's support. 

Thank you so much for all your help, 


'Thank you to Mrs C and son for the surprise cakes! I did wonder what I was signing for when the postman arrived with the big white box! Yum!'

We have lots more testimonials! I think the best testimony though is that we get lots of recommendations and referrals. Coast Education reports go a step further, and we are determined to help all students, children and parents find a way forward. Sometimes this means guiding the school with more supportive measures, sometimes it means we recommend an application for an EHCP. Whatever it takes, you have come to us for help, and it is our mission to provide that help.
