Featured in my regional newspaper… a lovely article about my Autism Hero Award, my prolific work for autism and other neurodivergences as well as for all sorts of other people who have no voice, whether thats because of a neurodiversity or their situation.
As just a really ordinary lady who had nothing at all, I hope this article brings some real and positive light and hope.
The only time I ever answer personal questions in interviews is if I feel from my heart that it will bring choice and empowerment to those millions who feel they have none.
We all get dealt cards in life.
It is what we do with them that counts.
I am not defined by what happened to me.
I defined IT.
And you can do the same.

CMA Breakfast Briefing : HOW I BUILT THIS with Giuliana Wheater
Really joyful to have been asked by Autism Eye magazine to contribute again to this wonderful publication.
I love this magazine, the best selling autism magazine in the UK because like me, the award winning editors are both parents as well as professionals in the world of autism.
Their magazine, born through their horrific and brave journey with their adored son Finn, just as my own was with my son Ollie, is packed full of advice, pointers, help, legal and tribunal advice, diet, EHCP’s ,the best treatments for your child and to help parents avoid the worst.
Autism Eye also keeps parents up to date with the latest research that could have a really positive effect on their children’s lives.
For this issue I was interviewed by Fiona Mc Neill about outdoor and sensory play therapy.
I share some of the ideas,activities and therapies that I use outdoors for the Community Project Rainbow Kids Touch Therapy which I founded in 2016 and which has been recognised by the Children’s University as a Learning Destination.
I also share the proven neuroscientific grounding as to how and why these therapies and activities are so successful for children of all different abilities.
It’s a great issue and it was lovely to learn from all the others who had also contributed.
We are all in this together.
The magazine can be accessed online at Autism Eye Magazine or in a hard copy.
