Special Educational Needs:




"Jeannette was extremely helpful in giving me clear and honest SEN advice - and amazing support in applying for an EHC Plan - which the school Senco had advised me was a pointless exercise, to even apply. The EHC Plan was finally granted at the last minute by the LA, on the day before our Tribunal Hearing. Jeannette is a great support and has a huge wealth of experience and expertise to guide parents through the SEN /EHCP process."


Mrs T.A., Telscombe Cliffs (Parent)



" Well informed, inspirational sessions that are aimed at all members of staff who work with young children. Jeannette is capable, experienced and confident and always leaves her audience buzzing with ideas and enthusiasm, a true professional with a wealth of experience to share!"



The Lyceum School, London




"I have always relied on Jeannette for her professionalism, the depth of her knowledge and the breadth of her experience. No one is more familiar with learning needs and the multiple layers of fact and fiction surrounding them." 

Susan Hayes,


Riddlesworth Hall School




"Inspiring and pragmatic. What most impresses me about Jeannette, other than her breadth and depth of knowledge, is how well she communicates with parents. Jeannette's compassion and her understanding of individual children's needs shines through."
