About us

0 MSA is the shared vision of an Educational Specialist, an Occupational Therapist and a Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist. Together we have many years experience of working with young people.

In our worlds we have too often seen individuals 'falling through the gap' of fragmented services, unable to access effective education and therapy. MSA tackles this problem by serving as a 'one-stop shop' for young people and their families.

Our combined expertise can guide individuals through the journey of assessment and intervention from start to finish. Working together we can provide the full range of therapeutic and educational approaches needed to help a young person move forward.

'If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.' Henry Ford
