In March 2022, my first book “Good Autism Practice for Teachers. Embracing Neurodiversity and Supporting Inclusion.” was published.
This book was a long time in the making. During my teacher training and early career I found myself constantly asking; where is the training on Additional Support Needs? How do I access the information I need to support children who have Autism? Or other complex needs? How do I make sure I am including everyone, and doing my very best for each and every child?
Unfortunately it seemed that the information I wanted was hard to find, and up to me to track down. I often thought to myself, some day, I’ll write this all down, in one place and in a concise and readable manner, so that future teachers don’t have to wade through mounds of information, adding to an already large workload.
The idea stuck, and last year I reached out to the wonderful team at Critical Publishing. Julia, my editor, was an incredible support and mentor throughout the writing process. She was always positive and helpful, and coped admirably well with my excessive comma usage. Together, we crafted “Good Autism Practice for Teachers” and I couldn’t be more proud of the result.
I really tried to take the research and present it in a way which is accessible and simple. Part one of my book contains theory, the why behind what we do. Part two then goes on to translate that into classroom practice, and provides high quality methodology and strategies, all of which have been tried and tested by myself.

A copy of my press release is also available, and I am happy to discuss any questions you may have. You can contact my publicist Di, D[email protected] or myself, [email protected]
