Every child is a unique individual, with different abilities and needs.

At times, it can seem difficult to know what is best to do to help our child.

There is a lot of information about supporting autism out there, which can be confusing and conflicting. 

There is not a ‘one size fits all’ approach that ‘works’. 

Each child is different and will therefore have different learning, communication and sensory needs.

Using my expertise and experience, I help parents and carers by:

  • Focusing on your child and their individual strengths and needs. Every child is unique.
  • Enhancing your knowledge of autism, sensory and communication needs and thinking about this in relation to your child.
  • Give advice or help you to identify and implement strategies to support your child, with specific outcomes in mind (e.g. reduce 'meltdowns')
  • Equipping you with a range of 'tools' and strategies to help yourself and your child.

Examples of specific themes of support I can help with:

  • advice to help children make progress with their communication
  • understand why children are behaving in a certain way
  • reduce 'challenging' or self injurious behaviour
  • children to have fewer 'meltdowns'
  • ideas for learning activities
  • understand sensory seeking or sensory avoiding and how to support this
  • children to take turns and share
  • toilet training
  • feeding and exploring new foods
  • children to manage their emotions and learn self regulating strategies
  • children to develop new play skills
  • meaningful interactions with children
  • help children to make smooth transitions during the day (without getting upset)
  • sensory activities at home, to meet sensory needs

I can teach you strategies that will really make a difference!

Over the past 10 years, I have taught many children with a wide range of complex needs and abilities.

I have learnt many helpful, evidence-based strategies that really help children to understand, communicate, learn and make good progress.

Children with autism learn differently. We therefore need to parent and teach differently.

Testimonials

I had the privilege to have Steph as my son's teacher for 3 years. The work and dedication she has with children is amazing. She has done amazing progress with my son even though he is nonverbal and had extreme self injurious behaviours. Her understanding on each individuals needs is really spot on and she works very closely with them to get the best out of their abilities. Steph listens and cares, and to parents that's very important as makes you work together for the better !!! I cannot recommend Steph enough, she is just brilliant!

This has been the case in the growing knowledge and skills of the staff she has worked alongside, the physical environment provided for pupils with ASD and the outcomes for those pupils"
