Neurodivergent designed & delivered SEND Training for Families and Professionals.

Hi and Welcome 

Who am I?

I am a neurodivergent with over thirty-five years of personal and professional experience in Neurodivergency, Autism, ADHD, Additional Needs, disabilities, and SEND; and twenty in designing and delivering training, management, and varying roles working with children. I added family support with an integrated approach to my Disability, Equality, and SEN law training to better support multiple areas of need. I’m fully insured (private indemnity and public liability), qualified, and trained, including DBS & Safeguarding level 3 in Children/Young People, and level 2 in adults. 

In addition to the above my working background is in developing and delivering training within a national photography company of which I was an Area Trainer for the SW area. I’ve over 20 years working in Training and management roles.

Based in Devon, SW; primarily covering Exeter, Mid and East Devon. Virtual sessions are available throughout the U.K.  I follow the Autism Education Framework and the Core Capabilities Framework for supporting Autistic People. 

A fundamental part of my business foundation is that I am an autistic parent carer of two Neurodivergent children with opposing additional needs. My eldest is autistic (PDA profile) with Auditory (APD) and Sensory (SPD) Processing Disorders, Hyperacusis, Misophonia, Social Anxiety, Sleep difficulties, Restricted Sensory Aversive eating, Selective Mutism, and suspected ADD. My youngest is asthmatic, with Sensory, Auditory & Visual Processing Needs, functional bladder/ bowel needs, suspected dyspraxia, and awaiting an autism assessment; my own Tigger Tornado.  

Being an autistic adult has helped me better understand my children’s needs. I have bilateral sensorial hearing loss (completely deaf on one side), APD/SPD, Trigeminal Neuralgia, HEDS (a connective tissue disorder), and hypermobility. Prior to having children, I worked as an Area Trainer for a national family photographic company; a children's nanny, club security, and in childcare.
