The CENMAC team is committed to supporting staff and pupils to achieve their full potential with the aid of Assisted Technology. So we are pleased to share our Advisory Teacher Ann Middleton’s recent email from a parent whose child is a CENMAC pupil.
Deputy Head Helen Loach is a parent whose child is supported by CENMAC:
Our daughter was diagnosed with a rare brain tumour when she was just three years old. Her tumour left her totally drug dependent and registered as blind. Five years on, numerous rounds of treatment later and some ups and downs along the way she’s now thriving and successfully coping within the context of a mainstream school-quite remarkable all things considered.
I always talk about the input of CENMAC, an extraordinary agency that ensures children with specific needs have access to technology so that they can thrive at school.
The support we have received from external agencies has been phenomenal and it is amazing what is out there – ensuring our little girl has the support required to enable her to reach her potential has always been a priority and we are her advocates in ensuring this has always been the case.
I always talk about the input of CENMAC, an extraordinary agency that ensures children with specific needs have access to technology so that they can thrive at school. Ann Middleton has been our link teacher since diagnosis – her commitment to our daughters needs has been unquestionable and the facility provided has undoubtedly enabled our little girl to succeed and perform to her potential. The quality of provision from CENMAC is first class – other parents at Great Ormond Street always comment on how lucky we are to have such support as this is so often lacking meaning youngsters don’t meet their benchmarks and are unable to thrive.
Without the input of this team there is no way our daughter would have achieved what she has and it is for that reason that we feel so fortunate to have them providing provision within a mainstream setting for children like our own little girl. We are grateful to the whole team as our daughter benefits on a daily basis from what they put into place for her.
