Qualifications

  • Psychology BSc (Hons)

CV

  • UK-SBA Registered.
  • 15 years’ experience working with children and young adults who have a diagnosis of autism.
  • Extensive background in Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA), having worked for six years at an ABA school in London, where I supervised programmes.
  • I have worked on ABA home programmes for over 8 years, consulting to schools, nurseries and colleges, as well as leading teams of tutors and parents in the home and community.
  • Can provide guidelines and recommendations that support individuals with autism to acquire skills, increase communication and manage challenging behaviours.
  • Follow evidence-based practice and, drawing from my behaviour analytic background, I design personalised learning programmes and behaviour support plans that are functional for the individual. Programmes are designed entirely around the needs of the child/young person, which are identified through assessment and in collaboration with the family.
  • Dedicated to ensuring that programmes are functional and meaningful for the individual, that they build independence, and enable success.
  • Work closely with parents and other professionals, including teachers, early years providers, Speech and Language Therapists, and carers and support staff, to establish programmes that are engaging and motivating for the individual.
  • A hands-on approach; I monitor progress on an ongoing basis, troubleshooting issues as they arise, and meeting regularly as a team to ensure that the child/young person continues to move forward.
  • Highly experienced with inputting to EHCP and education plan targets, and competent in providing professional reports that provide evidence of learning needs, progress, and recommendations for learning.
  • I provide entirely bespoke autism consultancy packages, individually tailored to the needs of the client. Where intense intervention programmes are needed, I will train and lead teams of tutors to provide regular 1:1 teaching sessions. Able to provide individualised parent training programmes and can consult to teaching staff to advise on how to effectively support students with autism
