Jennifer was simply outstanding. Her qualifications and experience are second to none. But she brings so much more to her assessments: exemplary communication skills, an ability to forge key relationships quickly (e.g. With school). She quickly won the trust of my son, thereby enabling a very fruitful discussion. She is extremely diplomatic and always goes the extra mile. Her up to date understanding of legislation and Local Authority procedures made her insights doubly invaluable. We were so grateful to her in so many ways, not least her approachability and the way she remained available for follow up discussion and support. Ultimately her detailed recommendations were adopted by the Local Authority in full, which is testament in itself. Thank you.
