I am delighted to announce one of my articles, ‘Successful Indian Head Massage for People with Special Needs,’ has been published on the Autism Parenting Magazine’s website and can be found in the Jun 2017 issue . I am really proud to have been a part of this absolutely wonderful and very valuable publication that does such important work.  To view my article, please visit the Autism Parenting Magazine’s website here.

Somerset Life Magazine

I am so very thrilled to be featured in the August 2017 issue of Somerset Life , part of the MediaClash magazine group , following the interview for BBC Radio and the recent national press coverage about the journey with my own son as I continue to raise awareness about these beautiful and wonderful and ABLE children and young adults.

As a Somerset girl this feels very special!  There was just one error (rectified in the following issue ) : the photograph is of myself with a student in one of my schools, and not my son Ollie as stated.However it is a lovely, lovely article and I’m a happy and proud little Somerset lady who is  just honoured to have my work featured. Please click on the image below to see my feature on page 18 of the Somerset Life August edition. Alternatively, please click here to see the entire edition.

Getting The Children’s Voices Heard on a National Level

Please see the articles from the Daily Mail, The Mirror,  The Somerset County Gazette and Somerset Live by clicking the corresponding links or the images above.An article also appeared in The Sun newspaper .

My son OLLIE has made the national and regional newspapers today!

A huge article in the Western Daily Press has appeared today – I didn’t even know until someone lovely posted on my timeline!

Back in April for Autism Awareness Month I set myself the seemingly impossible challenge that I would get Ollie’s voice, and the voices of so many different abled but amazing kids, heard on a national level. I even thought I’d pack sandwiches and sit outside editors offices if it came to it and accost them if they needed the loo.

I’m in tears as I write this because those voices, thanks to my son , have been heard today. No child should be boxed in by invisible cage bars just because of a label. We all deserve to become the best we can be, individuals with strengths and abilities, no matter how different those abilities are. With autism teaching global crisis levels, all these voices need to be heard and all these children to be part of a rich and inclusive future.

I am very excited to share with you that my article for the March 2017 issue of Health and Happiness magazine is now out !

I am particularly proud of this because it is a piece not just about my work but most importantly about my son , his journey and above all his strength as he fought through so many barriers to become the most beautiful and gifted young man that he is today. He is absolute proof that you must never let others define you or fill your life with limitations purely because you happen to have a label.
