“A great trainer and advisor with many years of experience backed with knowledge. I can only say positive things about Janette and her approach to providing support and guidance relating to neurodiversity for individuals and organisations.”
“Janette was one of the first Associates to join the Training team at the British Dyslexia Association (BDA) in 2008. At that time, Dyslexia was barely recognised by any employer and she contributed significantly to the rise in Dyslexia Awareness at Work.
Janette helped to develop policies and programmes for the workplace, she also donated a number of technological solutions to the Charity. Of particular note, was her work in creating best practices for workplace needs assessments and solutions. Many of these practices are now regarded as standard practice. The BDA was the only organisation to implement an accredited course and qualification for workplace needs assessors relating to neurodiversity. Janette contributed heavily to this work and also was the course tutor and assessor for several years.”

Janette came to us as one of my team was struggling with their work and thought it might be due to Dyslexia. Rather than running “training sessions” Janette used a more personal approach – looking at the challenges our employee faced each day in their role and coaching them in the best ways to handle them. This made the sessions more relevant to the employee’s situation and as a result, their confidence greatly improved and their performance did too. Following the sessions, the employee seems happier in their work environment and if a more difficult situation arises they feel able to cope using the techniques from the coaching. It has given me real pleasure to see them develop and become a valued member of my team.
