“A Tribunal Panel described Melissa’s report as ‘full and detailed’ and adopted all of her recommendations for therapy input”

"My staff attended a speech and language course and we were very impressed by how much knowledge Melissa had.  We found the course very informative and there were plenty of opportunities to put the theory into practice.  The question and answer section was very detailed and we would definitely recommend you use Chatterboxes services"

"We were enormously impressed with Melissa Richardson when she assessed our seven year old daughter, recently diagnosed with Pathological Demand Avoidance (further to an earlier diagnosis of ASD).

We were struck by Melissa's friendly, professional manner, but, perhaps even more impressed at her ability to be flexible in her approach to carrying out the assessment; this is particularly pertinent to our daughter's condition.

Melissa's instincts that involving my daughter in calculating the scores of the various tests and negotiating with her to take part, resulted in a far more accurate assessment than has previously been managed, due to non-compliance in the past.

Her evidence was invaluable as part of our successful tribunal appeal for our daughter to attend the appropriate school for her needs, where she is now flourishing."
