Case Study

Tom is an 11 year old boy who had been struggling to make friends and study at school for some time. Tom was receiving good support at school from his teachers but was due to make the tricky move from primary to secondary school.

Tom was due to be assessed by statutory services for an autism assessment but the waiting list was over a year so his parents contacted Hannahs Reach to see if we could offer an assessment.

The clinical team met with Tom and his parents to devise a personalised assessment plan to move forward with. Tom now has a confirmed diagnosis of autism and Reach has worked with Tom and his family to make the transition to secondary school easier. This includes delivering autism training sessions for Tom’s new teachers.

During Tom’s assessments sessions his parents and sisters have had the chance to have some time together as a family and have enjoyed a meal in the bistro and also accessed a family archery session on site! Now Tom is settled at his new school the family are going to try attending a regular archery session as a family.
