Working with Naoisé was extremely helpful in my preparation to commence a college degree. Naoisé was able to help me identify what style of learning suited me best, how to approach assignments and projects and how to get some balance in a day to day routine. Along with this Naoisé was also very helpful in giving me suggestions on different resources/technology I should
avail of while studying to help with a variety of tasks such as note-taking and studying.

Thoughts about Naoise and Homework Club and how it benefitted My son:

Meeting Naoise was a turning point in my son's life. He was at a point where he was isolated and in despair and seemed trapped, boxed in. Attending the Homework club in a way opened a door, shining light on his abilities and helping him see an outside world where he could belong.

Naoise was brimming with enthusiasm and ideas. Most importantly she inculcated in my son a sense of self-belief and knowledge of his strengths. Without this I very much doubt he would have achieved as much as he has today. He now seems to have a vision for his future and I am amazed at how focused he has become as his sense of achievement has grown.

Attending the Homework club gave my son structure and a sense of purpose as he had largely withdrawn from school. Naoise took immense care in composing groups of students who would learn and develop well together. She also chose teachers with care so they would match the students. She was insightful in detecting the nature of problems in school and was always very willing to discuss progress and give me more insight as regards stress and dyslexia. This was important so that I could support my son as well as possible at home. Naoise was incredibly prescient in relation to what would or wouldn't work for my son and this was proven time and again in state exam results. What was achieved was beyond all expectations.

I will be forever grateful to Naoise and her team for the invaluable contribution they have made to my son's life and in the process also mine.

"When I first met Naoise in November 2016, I wasn’t in a bad space, but I was still looking to understand the finer points of my personality. Being an active listener to her Podcast I thought about seeing her long before I took the plunge. Sitting here now I don’t understand why I waited.

Almost one year on, with a lot of baggage removed that I didn’t fully realise was there, things are much lighter in my life. I see me now. Not only do I truly know what will make me happy, she gave me the blueprint in how to get there. She then encouraged every step of the way. That’s a level of service I haven’t encountered anywhere before or since.

The path Naoise takes you on doesn’t just enrich your life but also the lives of everyone around you. A better you for you is a better you for all. So, if you are truly in the pursuit of happiness, I haven’t met a better cheerleader to get you there. Don’t hold back, dive in and enjoy the journey!"

"I contacted Naoise because my son was having difficulty with his attention and focus in school.  From the start I felt Naoise was on his side.  She is highly respectful and really knows how the childs mind operates.  I never felt like she was just ticking boxes but can really see how things are from their perspective.  Her passion is undeniable and she is such a support. She gave me practical and really inspirational ways to help him at home.  I would recommend her without question to anyone having difficulties with their child."  Irish Mother, December 2016

Testimonial

"My 5 year old son started school and almost immediately seemed to lose his natural love of learning that I'd admired since he was a baby. He was keeping up with his classmates but he had little interest in schoolwork and detested homework. Within 6 days of following Naoisé's practical and mostly very simple steps, he was voluntarily writing words phonetically and his desire to read was re-ignited. Now, he's not only back to the curious, funny, creative little guy he was but he is happier in himself which means our home, in general, is peaceful." Irish Parent, May 2016.

7 Year Journey Dr Naoise O’Reilly

IMG_7003I have always liked the number 7. This time of the year always makes me reflective as it was the first time of students flooding into The Homework Club in Blanchardstown in 2009. Many of these first cases turned out to be hugely influential in my own journey.

The first parent to ever ring me seeking help had a teenager who had not attended school for months having dropped out of the system. He took classes with us for 6 weeks and did so well in his state exams the school rang his mother with the results wanting to know what had changed. We worked with him for the next 3 years and hence I found myself taking on a huge number of cases with Aspergers Syndrome. I'm now known internationally as an expert in an area I never expected or set out to be.

By the following September even though I set the school up for second level students I found myself taking on the transition age before you start big school. By the following January a year after my craziness to set up my own school with my own teaching methods the youngest students were now 4.

Within this time I had been encouraged by people to go for a number of awards. These were important to me personally as the first outside validation of my work.

I guess all along the only judge of my work, research and methods has been the result my students have gotten. From these I have become a top referral for many organistations. I find it sad that in many cases I'm the person who people are sent to when no one else has been able to help them.

Two years after starting the school I realised I needed to convert all my work, experiences and methods into a formal system. This meant the birth of the Purple Learning Project. I have always felt there is a balance between supporting people currently in the system and making real change for the future.

I remember this odd moment of describing the basic Purple Learning method to someone and them asking who's work it was? What book could they read it in? The answer was none - my head. It's always been a bit bizarre to be so outside the box. To work in a way that has not existed before. The Homework Club was for me about proving all the wacky ideas in my own head.

Along the way in those years I developed all these ways of working with people with a whole spectrum of conditions including: ADD, ADHD, Asperger’s Syndrome, Dyslexia, Audio Processing Disorders, Hearing Impairments, Home Schooling, Dyscalculia, Dysgraphia, Confidence, Bullying, Self Harm, Sexuality, Learning Disabilities, Gifted Children, Exam Fears, Child Development, People Development, Team Development, Business Success, Bereavement and so on.

When I started the school I had one main question in my head. Why do no two dyslexics learn the same way? Through working with so many people and conducting interviews which allowed me to create unique profiles for everyone I now have the answer to that question 7 years later.

I now have the recorded patterns of how personality and learning style go together.

I reached the next major cross road in the school 4 years into the project. The students knew what we did. I collected many of their comments and feedback. It was a magic sense of achievement having created an environment they all loved so much. Hence the tag line became "Develop Your Love of Learning". But the parents had no idea in many cases what the project was about. I felt I was missing part of the puzzle. I also felt that many parents had lost involvement in their own children's education.

Confidence Club was born.

I was also itching  to take the projects nationally and internationally. Every time I did a radio interview I would be contacted by all these people rurally in Ireland with no support. Confidence Club has been about supporting students in their own homes, with the support and understanding of their parents.

Along the way the methods have continued to develop in the background. It feels like a back room factory sometimes. The most significant one being in 2013, Periodic Table of the Development of Results. Nicknamed Purple Success. It brought my science and creative brains together. It is the table of the elements each personality needs to succeed in life. Whether it is a 3 year old I'm helping to talk or a 5 year old to read or a business to grow. It always just about people and their personalities.

With all the work I have done to date my key focus in life still remains to take literacy and intelligence out of the same sentence. Because even after all these years I still remember what the teacher said to me in school at the age of 7.

Introduction

Welcome to the Confidence Club

One step closer to fulfilling a personal dream of mine - "to make school a happier, creative, more successful and enjoyable place for all students, regardless of their differences"... Dr. Naoisé O'Reilly

There is always a balance between making long term changes in education and supporting those people currently in the system!

One of the many reasons why Students attending The Homework Club become so successful is because of the awareness they have of their own Potential, Personality and Learning Style and how these effect their own educational success. Every Student at The Homework Club is set-up to work to their best abilities within the environment through an initial interview.

The Confidence Club now offers this service to everybody, especially those restricted through distance and who aren't able to attend our classes at The Homework Club.
