"Our unique relationship with Andrew Whitehouse began when I attended one of his fantastic courses. Following the course Andrew gave me his undivided attention to talk to me about specific pupils in our school. Andrew also worked with our staff team to help create a water tight behaviour policy and reward & sanction programme which helped to create a robust and consistent approach to behaviour right across the school from reception to year 6. I would say that our school has never looked back since our initial meeting with Andrew and feel we have a friend and confident in our constant drive to support our children to be the best that they can be."– Nicola James, Head Teacher, St Andrew's Primary School Bishop Auckland
"We have had the pleasure of having Andrew delivering whole school training on ADHD, ASD and Social Stories and Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and Dyscalculia on two separate events. Andrew raised awareness amongst staff and shared with us practical, easy strategies to implement in class to help support our most vulnerable students. The impact of his courses was evident the day after, with teachers preparing their own dyslexia friendly packs for their classrooms. Andrew's approach is friendly and relaxed, making it simple to understand for parents and teachers alike what it's like to have learning difficulties and how these impact on children."– Patricia Martin, SENCO, Focus School Swaffham, Norfolk
"I went to a talk Andrew gave to start a day of workshops for TAs. I was blown away with Andrew's enthusiasm and presentation style which engaged 150 people and sparked their own enthusiasms for the day."– Robyn Steward, Autism Advocate and Professional Speaker
