In 1999 Judy was awarded Fellowship of the British Psychological Society, in 2004 she was the Welsh Government sponsored Welsh Woman Educator of the Year and in 2010 received the Institute for Welsh Affairs Inspire Wales Educator Award. The Centre for Evidence Based Early Intervention (CEBEI) was launched in 2011, building on her earlier work. In June 2011 she was awarded an OBE in the Queen's birthday honours list for services to children and families. She currently has research links with Southampton, Oxford and Cape Town Universities and is involved in developing parenting support in township communities in South Africa and in the Philippines and in supporting teachers in Lesotho.
