Testimonial from Virginia in UK - England, a Parent of an Autistic Person

 " Life Guides for Autism | NeuroGuides, what can we say.. David's enthusiasm in both guiding and assisting us in making and taking achievable steps towards goals is contagious. Coming from years of 'battling the system and so called experts' at last someone who actually listens and understands. He puts his empathy - feeling what we as a family are going through - into action by working together with us and guiding us forward. His humour at times is invaluable in those ' if you don't laugh, you'd cry ' situations. Thoroughly professional, I would totally recommend this service to other individuals and their families."
