"Ben has made more progress through this project than we ever thought possible. It is the only work he has ever approached with a smile on his face. He really enjoys it and his reading and general comprehension skills have dramatically improved. In some ways, more importantly than this, it has made a dramatic difference to his self-confidence and his attitude to work and life in general.

As all parents of children with a learning need know, any type of academic work causes arguments and tension at home. Decipha has meant that we no longer have these arguments. It has given us a chance to talk about work in an enjoyable and non-threatening way.

Our son is now more confident and less worried and in turn we are happier as a family. I cannot stress enough just how grateful we are for this programme and how much of a difference it has made to us all."
