Six-year-old Arjun loves his activities. He enjoys trampolining, Beavers and has a slight obsession with drawing comic strips and reading the Beano. Arjun has very good social skills and a close group of friends; however, he lacks confidence in his abilities, is a perfectionist, hates to be put on the spot and fears being challenged outside of his comfort zone.  Discover more about how Potential Plus UK helped his parents and school to help him by visiting Arjun’s Story.

Maddy was a happy, confident, bright toddler with a fantastic imagination: curious about everything and afraid of nothing.  The neighbourhood cat, aliens, stars, the workings of a mechanical toy, nothing escaped Maddy’s enthusiasm for new experiences. She couldn’t wait to start school… However, taunted as “weirdo” and “alien” and isolated at school, asking her parents why the children wouldn’t play with her and how she could be ‘normal’, her mental health deteriorated and she started refusing to go to school.  Find out how her life was turned around in Maddy’s Story

When Ryan started junior school his whole personality changed. From being a happy child with a terrific sense of humour, he became very unhappy, withdrawn and aggressive. He was unpopular with the other children and lacked concentration, spending his time looking out of the window. Despite this he still came in the top three of his class each term, but the school told his parents that he wasn’t particularly bright and warned them he was likely to become a delinquent. Read the inspiring story of how Ryan (with an IQ of 170!) went on to fulfill his potential in Ryan’s Story
