She dealt with a range of complex cases with integrity and professionalism, demonstrating exceptional critical and analytical thinking skills and openness to learning. At the same time she keeps the child and the family in the heart of her involvements."

"I've been working with Evrydiki for three years now and she is excellent with the pupils. She is kind and approachable and does all she can to ensure they feel secure and happy. She responds well with very shy and timid pupils and through the rapport she builds with them, she helps them open up within a few hours."

"Dr Zafeiriou was quick to respond to e-mails reflecting her calm, efficient, professional manner. She listened carefully to our concerns without making assumptions. She used questioning effectively to analyse the situation or simplify complex situations to identify the pertinent factors and then suggest possible solutions. I was quite stressed about what my daughter's learning needs meant but she empowered me as a mother and gave me the confidence to apply the strategies we talked about."
Year 6 Student's Mother | December 2019
"I have been working with Evrydiki for two years and she stands out for her warmth and approachability. She is aware of the constraints of a small school and is willing to adopt a flexible approach and adapt ideas to suit our circumstances. She sets up meetings promptly, with clear timings, so we can inform parents and we all share the same expectations. As she is an excellent communicator, her reports help reflect the school’s long term aims which supports better outcomes for the child involved. She signposts additional resources clearly and can also offer training on certain aspects."
City School Special Unit SENCo | June 2019
"Dr Zafeiriou helped us with our son's ASD diagnosis. We felt familiarity and respect to us and our son since the beginning and she never failed to explain to us what is happening at each stage of his statutory assessment and what his needs are. She made clear to us who was doing which action at every step of the way and she was always in touch with our son's class teacher and key worker."
Nursery Student's Parents | January 2019
