Work With Me
Discussing autism acceptance in your community or workplace
I’ve developed a series of workshops for parents, public sector organisations and companies including:
“I've learned to be more understanding towards my grandchild. That my grandchild is special in his own way.”
“It really helped me to learn that my personal experience is shared and that I am not alone.”
“This session was very relatable with lots of relevant shared experiences.”
My talks share my personal experiences and are packed with practical tips and insights about supporting the autistic children in our lives from a cultural perspective. I speak with a passion that stems from my deep-seated belief in the beauty and uniqueness that every autistic child brings to this world.
Having been a manager for several years, I know how challenging it can be to provide the right support to employees with autistic children, however well-intentioned organisations may be. My talks help managers feel empowered to ask perceptive questions of their employees. I share my insight on the typical challenges employees may be facing and the long term impact on employee wellbeing so organisations can be more proactive in serving staff that may be struggling in silence.
Many teachers want to do more to support their autistic BAME children and their families but are under increasing pressure to balance tailored pastoral care alongside their other responsibilities. I offer bite-sized sessions to facilitate smoother triangulation between home and school life with a focus on how to support our autistic children so they can thrive.
