👋 Welcome back to #MeaningfulMonday! We hope everyone is having an amazing start to the week. Today’s review is from a valued client’s mum, who recently underwent an assessment at TEP.
😊 At TEP, we specialise in assessments for ASD, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and Dyscalculia, and Intellectual Disability. Our expert Psychiatrists and Psychologists offer tailored recommendations during feedback appointments, guiding our clients towards the support they need.
