"The taxi driver and escort are lovely and he shares with 2 others. He has really taken to college and settled in really quickly much to our surprise. We had a wobble over his work options as he chose painting and decorating but he struggled with that due to his sight and has changed to catering which he is happier about.
His weekly cooking is usually delicious and he is enjoying the different challenges of college life and his course. Finally we have Rovic involvement due to his sight registration being corrected to severely sight impaired.
He still misses Heles, his LSA and you all, but his maturity is evolving."

Quote from the parent of a former Hele's student.
