Who am I?
I develop and run bespoke training on all aspects of autism - especially for the social care and education sectors.
I develop and run lively and comprehensible training on legal framework topics (sometimes on behalf of Belinda Schwehr of Care and Health Law). Topic coverage includes: Care Act, Mental Capacity Act, EHC plans and transition, Safeguarding.
I offer a consultancy service in both of my fields of expertise providing tailored support, research and specialist knowledge for a range of purposes.
Autism training which offers practical strategies and realistic scenarios
Legal framework training which is clear and understandable to practitioners
Speaking and Writing
An experienced and well-reviewed conference speaker
Published author able to write for a range of audiences
I offer bespoke consultancy across my areas of expertise.
Recently I delivered a highly successful school improvement project with St. Clement’s school, who in the words of education inspectors: “benefited from very effective external training and consultancy on autism.”
“Changed my thinking”
“Fantastic presentation style that is captivating and comprehensive”
"Very relevant: I’m going away with a practical 'toolkit'"
"Very frank, honest and down-to-earth perspective"
“Very knowledgeable and answered the many questions we asked her”
“Well presented. Clear, precise examples of practice. Yo extremely knowledgeable on law.”
“Yo’s presentation was engaging, informative, thorough and wonderfully clear. Her knowledge of autism and the related legislation is impressive. Commission Members gathered new insights and were challenged to think differently. I would highly recommend Yo’s consulting services.” – Barry Sheerman MP, Chair of the Westminster Commission on Autism (May 2016)
