We consulted with Mandy for assistance with school choices for our 9 year-old son. Making the switch from public to private was a daunting choice, and while our budget was constrained we were willing to cast a wide net in terms of area.  Mandy helped us research and understand our choices; she provided guidance in follow-up conversations as we entered talks with different school admissions teams and celebrated with us when we found a just-right match for our family! We highly recommend her services and would absolutely contact her again, if the need arose. Thanks Mandy!

"Mandy was a great pleasure to work with. We were confronting very tight timing with our search and she went the extra mile during a holiday week to produce our report quickly. The report contained the essential and relevant information in a comprehensive, clear, and organized format. We requested that she include an overview of different options at different entry points and she was more than happy to do so. She discussed our options with us with great warmth and attentiveness to our needs and concerns. We would highly recommend her to anyone undertaking a school search for their child."

"Mandy Vadnai has been a godsend for our family. Our 14-year-old son has autism, and we first worked with Mandy to help us find a school that would meet his complex needs. Mandy started by listening, asking great questions, and spending time at our house, observing our son and really understanding him. She then created a search document that clearly listed out the criteria we were looking for. That was just that start!  Mandy has been thorough, efficient, responsive, communicative, and positive. She’s also flexible, expanding to help us look for after-school programs and live-in support. What I love most is that her work feels customized to us; she’ll tell us plainly if a school isn’t right or if there is a promising option. Being a special needs parent is really tough. Having a smart, thoughtful, resourceful, knowledgeable partner like Mandy has been a game-changer for us. "​

"We found speaking with you gave us some clarity of which schools to focus on, and felt supported in this early stage of the process for us.  We will definitely pass your name on to anyone looking for similar support."
