My 3 children have attended Horizons Therapy Systems during the course of the last year. Both for assessment & for Occupational Therapy. The difference the team in Horizons Therapy Systems has made to our lives is immeasurable. For the older children School grades have gone up hugely, they are more happy & confident & don't get annoyed with themselves as much & my younger child is delighted with herself in being able to do so much more independently. Starting off it seems like such a big hurdle to face but stick with it because the teams guidance & friendly ear, has such a positive impact in every aspect of day to day life, that they really have been a shining light in my children's future, and I can't recommend them highly enough.
The possibility of my child having anything wrong with them let alone autism is the most frightening and devastating cross I have ever had to bear in my life. I knew in my heart when my little boy was 2 that something wasn't right but he wasn't diagnosed through the HSE till he was 4 and a half through a very long and drawn out process. However, my little boy had started attending Horizon Therapy Services at the age of 2 privately and looking back this was just invaluable to his progress that he has achieved to date at the age of 7. This was my trump card in getting early intervention "as it's called " started immediately as time is so precious. The therapy that he received here was second to none and they really helped my child so much. The advice and support that my family got (that we really needed) is what got me through the first few very hard years of accepting my little boy with all his quirks, challenges and difficulties that he faces on a daily basis. I cannot recommend highly enough Horizon Therapy Services as I watch my little boy grow and develop 5 years on. Without them I would not be seeing this progress. More importantly my child and my family rely on his therapy which makes such a difference to our family life and my little boys development and all the little things that are taken for granted that my child struggles with everyday. I would be more than happy to speak with anyone who wishes to seek advice at the start of any diagnosis as it is a very lonely place to be. Finally I will be forever grateful for the unbelievable support I have received to date from horizon therapy services and honestly do not know where I would be with my little boy today without them.
Our Son was 3 years old when we made contact with the clinic. I spoke to a wonderful person, Sarah, who later became our child’s occupational therapist. I will always remember the lengthy phone call with Sarah. I spoke of the challenges and difficulties we had with our little boy. Sarah listened and understood all of our concerns and then helped support our little boy on his road, through her expertise as an occupational therapist. Our Son is now 10 years old and still attends Horizons Therapy Services at regular intervals. Over the years the expert team at Horizons Therapy Services have continued to support, help and guide, not only our little boy, but also us as a family.
Myself and my husband started our road to Autism in 2014. We had heard so much about Horizon Therapy Services. We gave them a call in 2016 when we got our heads around the fact our son had Autism. Well it was the best thing we ever did. The girls have gone above and beyond to help us with our son. The difference in him after a month worth of OT was amazing. They dealt with his school and helped him and they make school relaxing for him. I know I only have to pick up the phone or email with a problem and they will help out the best they can. We are truly blessed to have such a great service close to us.
