“Of all the testimonials we’ve ever been asked to write, this one for Jackie Heywood, is the easiest. Jackie headed a unique and innovative department at a school where our son was a pupil. During his time at school he had considerable difficulties. Jackie fought for him, she was phenomenal at communicating to staff teaching him his particular needs. She arranged supplemental teaching for him both at school and at home. She facilitated the referral for his assessment at the Lorna Wing Centre and, ultimately, she provided essential evidence when he went to University, in short, without Jackie, our son would not have secured his place at University and would not be where he is today. Jackie is one in a million, and we can’t recommend her highly enough!” NT04/02/21
