My son Martyn has dyspraxia and other learning difficulties but he saw absolutely no reason why this would prevent him from learning to drive. We booked lessons with an Instructor who had been recommended, and it appeared everyone was learning with him. After numerous lessons a driving test was booked for Martyn but then one day his driving instructor took me aside rather than explain to Martyn that some people aren't meant to drive. Months later I read an article about Neil and how he saw no reason why people with various difficulties should not be able to drive. We met Neil, discussed the issues, and in his opinion he saw no reason why Martyn should not be able to drive. Neil found ways to explain things in a way that made sense to Martyn, he gave him an alternative to the normal approach of teaching someone to drive. Martyn had three attempts at the driving test, failing the first two due to nerves, nothing major, and then he passed the third one almost fault free. It is one of his best achievements of his life so far! I am so pleased I read the article that day because it literally changed Martyn's life.
My grandson Chris has dyspraxia and when he said he would like to learn to drive, I was very dubious. I wanted him to have the chance like any other person his age, but felt uneasy about it. Living with Dyspraxia is a challenge and I didn’t think he could concentrate for a full lesson and would an instructor understand and cope with it, but in my heart of hearts I knew he had the right to learn to drive. I typed in “learning to drive with dyspraxia” and was amazed at how many sites there were and thought this just might be possible. Trailing through them all I couldn’t believe it when I saw one from Stockton called EXCEED. I clicked on this one and it was like winning the lottery. Neil had written on the site that everyone had the right to learn to drive they just had to be taught differently. I rang the number and spoke to the lovely Caron. She knew exactly how I felt and what we were going through and after a long chat I felt I had known her for years. She arranged everything even to my grandson being picked up at Hartlepool which was easier for us and on the appointed day we both met Neil. What a guy, always professional with a great passion for the job, fun to be with and my grandson was so relaxed in his company, it greatly enhanced his learning. He didn’t tell him what to do he showed him and explained why. He always had great faith in Chris and allowed for the days when he had his silly head on. Always calm, always giving praise. It took a long time till Chris was ready for his test but on the day, he was happy and relaxed and said he believed in himself and wanted to pass for Neil. He did pass first time with 3 minor faults and I have never been so proud. How do you thank a man like Neil? His patience and encouragement made my grandson’s confidence soar, we are all on cloud 9 and if there is anyone out there with a special needs family member who would also like to learn to drive and you too are apprehensive, don’t be, go to this site and enjoy the ride. E.H. A very grateful gran
