“Embracing Neurodiversity and supporting inclusion.”

– Karen Watson


I am a teacher with over a decade of experience in the Additional Support Needs sector. I have worked across a variety of provisions, and have experience in Leadership roles and Management within schools.


I have been heavily involved in Quality Improvement within my roles. I also create and produce bespoke training courses, based on creating Accessible Education for all children.


I write regularly for online publications, including TES Scotland.

I have also written a book ‘Good Autism Practice for Teachers. Embracing Neurodiversity and Supporting Inclusion’, which combines research and theory with achievable strategies and resources.


I want to push Education into a new era. Inclusion and Accessibility are not add-ons, they must be an integral part of our educational pedagogy. Through supporting colleagues, providing clear guidance, and developing new and exciting strategies, I hope to bring our education system into a place where it meets the needs of ALL learners.

Get in touch to discuss any of the above, or to book a speaking or training session.
