About me

Through a variety of experiences, both personal and professional, I have developed a sincere and intense passion to use my skills to support families and children with special educational needs and disabilities.  

In September 2004, aged 25 months, my son was diagnosed with classic autism.  My understanding as a parent enhances my ability to empathize with the challenges faced by families.  I have been actively involved in parent support work for many years, including developing and delivering training.

I have a BSc (Hons) Psychology and I am a qualified primary school teacher, with further post-graduate study at Masters level to learn about best practice in autism education.  I believe in individualized learning, pro-active strategies, building on strengths and therapeutic input. 

Having navigated the education and social care systems to secure a good level of support for my son, I am driven to find solutions and achieve comprehensive education and support packages to meet the needs of the individual.

I have completed SEN Legal Advisor training, and also volunteer for IPSEA's Tribunal Support Service.

Although autism is a particular area of interest for me, I work with children who have a diverse range of needs and strengths.   I will work relentlessly to achieve the best possible outcomes for your child or young person.

In addition to my consultancy and advocacy services, you will find me regularly at local parent support groups offering informal support and advice.

You and your child deserve the best.  Don't be limited by what you have been told or what you think is possible.

I believe in.......
  • Celebrating diversity
  • Focusing on strengths
  • Equality of Opportunity
  • Parent power
  • Never giving up
Aim High
