Customer testimonials

What love hearing from our customers, here’s what some of our justice clients had to say about Do-IT…

Co-Founder and COO, Justine Coleman, Alliance of Sport

“This digital app is a phenomenal game changer – having worked in Criminal Justice and with complex people, Neurodiversity assessment and identification is a very costly, time consuming and complex process. The assessment process in this app and the person centred report, offers a truly unique, cost effective and time saving foundation for all professionals and participants to learn from and move forward with. I will be using this within all our projects moving forwards.”

Operational Manager, Lee Matthews, St Helens Youth Justice Service

“Do-IT profiler’ has been an invaluable in assisting Youth Justice Service practitioners to identify the neurodiverse strengths and challenges of the children that we work with. Using this tool, practitioners have been able to tailor plans and interventions specifically with each child in mind. In addition, practitioners have been able to share findings with other key agencies to ensure a each child’s needs are supported appropriately across the partnership. Regular data analysis from the team has also helped us to gain a greater understanding of the neurodiversity of children known to our service.”

Resettlement Practice Manager (Oakhill Secure Training Centre), David Brown, G4S

“As an establishment we deal with complex children many of whom have unidentified learning needs and/or diagnosed mental health needs. The DO-IT allows us to get an understanding of the needs of the child when they arrive, then as we get to know an individual and refer to their past history, we are able to have a bigger picture of what their needs are. We can use DO-IT’s intervention screener to apply the interventions based on their responses and it allows us to create plans for behaviour management with the child, that is bespoke to them and makes them feel like they are part of the process of planning their future, which is fundamental if we are to achieve success with a child.”
