“I took my son, 11, for his first appointment with Jerome. My son has learning disabilities and is autistic, pre-verbal, very anxious in clinical settings. Jerome was fantastic, asked me appropriate questions at the beginning, so he could make it stress-free and a productive appointment engaged warmly but in a low key way with my son. This helped him to feel safe and relaxed and able to follow the instructions and we got a good overall assessment completed. When you find a great Professional who just ‘gets it’ it’s a huge relief! Now I know my son’s vision is going to be fully supported.”

“My four boys and I have been with Barnards for many years after a friend referred me to them. We have always been very well looked after by all the staff and nothing is too much trouble, however big or small. I would highly recommend Barnards as the personal touch of care always comes through.”
