Independent Autism SEND Advocacy  &                  Training.    Putting Families first, we just make SENDse. 

Hi and Welcome 

With over 15 years personal experience of Autism and SEND, and trying to get the correct support for my family.  I now want to share my knowledge. I’m fully insured and trained. 

I am a parent carer of two children with opposing Needs. My eldest is autistic with Auditory (APD) and Sensory (SPD) Processing Disorders, Hypercausis, Misophonia, social Anxiety, Sleep difficulties, and very likely Selective Mutism. My youngest is asthmatic, with identified Sensory Needs; he’s my own Tigger Tornado. 

Being an autistic adult has helped me better understand my children’s  needs. I have severe unilateral sensorial hearing loss, and HEDS (a connective tissue disorder). 

Based in Devon, SW; primarily covering Exeter, Mid Devon.
