A child with Hurlers Syndrome
16th October 2012
To whom it may concern
Our little girl has a condition known as Hurlers Syndrome which affects both her physical and mental development. This resulted in her missing a lot of pre-school and thus falling behind in certain areas especially her ability to pick up, hold and use crayons/pencils and to focus on classroom activities.
I was recommended by the Clann Resource centre in Oughterard, to get in touch with Helen Mullarkey. Since starting her weekly sessions with Helen, we have noticed huge improvements with her concentration and fine motor skills.
She is now in Primary school and these sessions have helped her complete written work sheets and colouring activities given to her in class.
We are delighted to have such a service in our area and would have no hesitation in recommending Helen to other parents of children with special needs.
