Breakthrough Education Support worked with us to plan interventions for three children who were in need of specialised help, when the school had run out of strategies. Maria’s reports were thorough, detailed, insightful and very practical. Her methods are straightforward to implement and they make sense. Following her advice doesn’t bring an instant result, but by using the recommended strategies we started to see improvements. It was good to have a fresh pair of eyes and professional guidance to help us move forward. I can strongly recommend Maria’s work.

Maria has supported the school in a variety of ways from whole class behavioural support for challenging cohorts, specific behavioural support for high tariff need children to learning support for children not making progress and significant SEND children. She accommodates urgent requests whenever possible and provides a quick turnaround for written reports which has been a massive help when completing referrals or putting action plans together. Her strategies and support are always detailed and offer lots of new ideas for staff to try. Additionally, she is happy to talk through support with staff and families in order to maximise success.
I found Breakthrough Education Support an excellent service. My child had been struggling at school for many years and was beginning to lose confidence in his abilities. Breakthrough Education Support listened to mine and my son’s concerns. After a few assessment’s we received a detailed report which enabled me and my son to have a better understanding of his learning style as well as providing recommended tasks. Having this understanding has given my son back his confidence as well as practical skills he can use in his everyday learning. My son’s school has also benefitted as they are able to also better cater the learning and support that they provide for him. This has meant my son has progressed in his learning where previously he had really struggled. I am very grateful for this service and the support that was provided.
Maria, from Breakthrough Education Support, has assessed a number of our young people who have learning and behaviour needs. She always provides a high quality service; she is knowledgeable, professional and efficient. She quickly establishes a good rapport with young people and their parents and is sensitive to their concerns. Her assessments are thorough and we have used her advice to implement effective interventions. She has conducted exam access arrangement testing for us and manages the process smoothly. Her support has been invaluable.
