Listen to Parents: Louise’s Story

Listen to Parents is a series of testimonials from parents who have seen their children develop in leaps and bounds following Karen O’Connor’s Pieces of the Jigsaw© programme.

Louise details her son’s experiences with the Pieces of the Jigsaw programme as delivered by Karen O’Connor.

Louise noticed her son, Bear was pointing and waving instead of speaking and at 14 months regressed went downhill. He walked on his toes, with his hands over his ears- very anxious and had a pale complexion. Louise talks about her son being lifeless, not smiling and had no sense of where he was and looked lost. 

Louise brought her son to various speech & language therapists and after assessments and trying different approaches they felt the gains were short-lived for how unwell they made his son feel. 

The first time Louise felt hopeful was after speaking with Karen O’ Connor.

Karen’s expertise and guidance really helped Louise and her husband manage their son. The combination of therapeutic listening and the LiFT programme was a game changer. Before this Louise admits her son was a sad child, no personality  after four days he started showing interest and

In the beginning his spinning got worse but things started to calm down and his eye contact improved. There were so many changes that Louise keeps a diary. His expressive language and clarity has really improved and engagement with others with the LiFT programme. 

The results are life-changing.
