Dear Dr. Anton, When I was desperately seeking help for my son who is autistic with severe food aversion, and almost lost all hope I heard about Dr Anton. He gave us hope and courage to work towards our goal. I joined his RBT program as a part of continuously helping my son and it gave me a chance to gain wide knowledge and meet with other parents and professionals.
With his wide range of knowledge and experience, Dr Anton sees each difficulty of a child in depth and tries to figure out the cause and suggests interventions. He understands children very well and knows the appropriate interventions which works very well for them. He also understands parent’s views and problems and is always there to support them. He is my son’s Psychologist and he is specialised in sensory integration and speech as well. His thoughts and willingness to lend a helping hand towards special need children and their families are incredible and much appreciated by all especially by the Sri Lankan community living in the UK.
Thank you very much Dr Anton for your continuous support.

Dear Dr. Anton, Thanks a lot for your advice & guidance. My son is showing his amazing skills, I feel like I underestimated my child. He is feeding himself, brushing his teeth without any help. My parenting style wasn’t good enough, I was overprotective and scared mostly. Thanks for making me realise at least by now it was a good call I reached you. Thank you so much!

Hi Dr Anton, it’s a great delight that we met you in our life as you are the one who opened our eyes and advise how we could support and overcome my son’s issues. You came to our home from far away to assess our son and you gave lots of recommendations and advice and that shows how much care you have taken towards my son’s future. Every time I call, you give advice and recommend certain activities to try. You have given us hope and positive thoughts that if we work with our son regularly then we could see the changes over the period of time and I could really see that this is happing now.
It’s very hard to see this kind of down to earth person now a days and you deserve it. We always feel that you are one of our family members and always there to support us.
Further, you also provide seminar for parents on regular basis and all of us are getting benefit from that and your presentation / seminar empowered us as parents to handle our child in the right direction. Thank you so much! You are an amazing Doctor!

Dear Dr. Anton,
You came to our home to assess our daughter and gave the report. You introduced so many new terms regarding my daughters condition. I joined your RBT classes and it was very informative. You built hope within me and gave me confidence that I could do something with my daughter in the future. Dr. James, you are a path giver for the special need children. After the training for the RBT I am confident that I can train my daughter in her daily living. RBT through Dr James is not only the course, but also the new future for the unprivileged.
We, our family and friends, thank you Dr James from the bottom of our hearts. Yes, like for me, your support will relieve the pain for many families who are deserted with their loved ones with special needs.
Our family wish you all the success to your new project and yet more to come for the future. Once again thank you and God bless you and your family. Thank you Dr James.
