Specialist Teacher and Consultant

Hello, I am a specialist teacher and consultant providing a service which offers support, advice and training on autism to schools, families and organisations.


I am passionate about improving outcomes for children and young people with autism and social communication differences.

My aims are to increase knowledge and understanding of autism and provide practical and realistic advice and recommendations. I love to work collaboratively with staff and families to problem solve and move situations forward.

I am a qualified teacher (B.Ed), hold a Masters in Autism (children and young people) and have a secure working knowledge of the SEND Code of Practice and hold an enhanced DBS.

From 2006 – 2020 I worked as a Specialist Teacher for children with autism and social communication with the Essex Local Authority Specialist Teaching Service, having previously worked as a SENCo and class teacher.

I am also an experienced trainer and have extensive experience of developing training packages for both professionals and parents. I have been a certified trainer for the Autism Education Trust. I am committed to delivering relevant and bespoke training in an interactive and relevant style to suit the requirements of the participants.
