Giuliana intends to stop children and young people with "special needs" being surrounded by a total lack of expectation, and to stop the discrimination to make schools more inclusive and supportive of anyone with a need, issue or difference. These children need their voices back.

She has run training sessions for some of the most well-known "special needs" organisations, such as ADHD, ASC & LD Belgium, MIND, and has given many talks and workshops.
A mother to an autistic son who sufferes with OCD, she has a unique perspective and a wealth of understanding and knowledge. Giuliana has also written several articles, including for AutismEye and Nasen Publications.
Giuliana has spoken at many key events held at schools, autism centres and conferences all over England, Europe and further afield, including talks and training in Sweden, Belgium, Scotland, Ireland and America.
"Giuliana Wheater brought her technique and enthusiasm to ADHD, ASC & LD Belgium last year to give Indian Head Massage training to our group. Her method is simple and her teaching was well paced. By the end of the course, we were all well-versed in her technique from her step by step instructions. Even more than that, every participant's face was visibly more relaxed at the end of the 2-day course, if not glowing.
We wholeheartedly endorse this technique and Ms Wheater."
