I have been working in the field of autism for the past four and a half years. I have supported many children and adults on the autism spectrum, including in various special schools and a resource provision, in their homes, and in the community. I have seen some huge successes and progress in children I work with. I have attended conferences, TEACCH training, SCERTS training, and am qualified as a basic Floortime practitioner. I have also volunteered in the country’s leading provider of early intervention, The Puzzle Centre. I am in my final year of a Masters Degree in Autism in Children, at the University of Birmingham. I continue to constantly keep my knowledge up to date.
I have spoken at the Greater Manchester Autism Consortium's "Autism in the Early Years" conference, the recording of which can be found here and here. I have also had an article about The Rainbow Project published in Network Autism, an online journal run by the National Autistic Society. The article can be found here.
