Some Testimonials from Parents

Mane is absolutely amazing with kids. She provided exceptional OT support to my son to help him with day-to-day tasks. and self-care, emotional regulation and social skills. She is very intuitive and picks up what the child needs and find a way to connect and engage with each child. my son absolutely loved his therapy sessions with her and his older brother loved coming along as Mane always found a way to include him, which was brilliant for helping my 2 boys to find ways to play together.

Working with Mane was a turning point for our family. She not only knew exactly how to work with our son, but completely understood our difficulties and frustrations and showed us what we needed to do to overcome them. Therapy sessions were fun, relaxed and informative. She answered all our questions and gave us the recommendations and tools to make amazing progress. If you are looking for answers for your child, this is the place to be!
N. son aged 2
Mane has had such a positive impact on us as a family. I don't think she even realises how important our sessions have been. The results for us have been amazing. Patrick wouldn't engage or enter Mane's playroom the first day or weeks! Since then he has flourished with her therapy sessions. This week he started junior infants apprehensive like all new students but happy, confident and equipped with the tools to cope with the situation and his difficulties. Mane has an amazing way with children and really develops trust and rapport. Patrick loves her and loves that she is helping him. Mane has also been brilliant at teaching me how to best support Patrick, understanding him, his difficulties and his behavioural signals. We cannot thank Mane enough for all she has done for us. The experience has transformed all our lives.
Mane has been an outstanding Occupational Therapist for our son, James. Her energy and enthusiasm is extraordinary and our son has made great gains thanks to her! We are forever grateful...
We have seen amazing improvements in my sons emotional regulation and organisational skills since visiting Real Connections. The recommendations we have gotten have helped us a lot with things like transitions, sharing and turn taking. We are extremely grateful for this service'
We found Mane to be endlessly positive and optimistic! Her dealings with Lucia were always kind and fun while as an observing parent I always sensed that she was working towards specific goals. Mane was also very encouraging of me as a parent in taking on ideas and projects that I could work together on with my daughter at home. The work Mane did with Lucia made a huge difference to her and our family life! We loved our time with Mane and would not hesitate to recommend her!
