Head of Learning Support / SENCo, Independent Preparatory School
‘’We have worked with Emily for nearly seven years and over that time she has conducted many specialist assessments for us which has helped to diagnose pupils with specific difficulties e.g. dyslexia, dyscalculia or other specific learning needs. She is very experienced and is able to provide valuable advice to us to suggest a wide range of strategies to support pupils and to help them to achieve their potential in school.
Emily is extremely professional, and she offers an excellent service and support both to parents and to schools; she gathers detailed information from school, parents and the pupil when making her judgements. Furthermore, her reports are very thorough and include lots of practical advice and links to relevant resources, as well as providing recommendations on exam access arrangements, if appropriate.
Emily is very approachable, and she puts the pupils at ease during the assessments. Her experience and manner allow her to reassure both pupils and parents alike, especially when discussing a possible diagnosis. She explains her specialist assessments very clearly so that parents understand their child’s strengths and areas of weakness and how these will impact them in school and in life.’’
