I am a Paediatric Occupational Therapist with over 30 years' experience, within the NHS and in private practice, working with babies, children and young people (birth to 19) with a range of needs. I have extensive experience working with children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders, Developmental Co-ordination Disorders (including Dyspraxia), Sensory Processing Disorders, Cerebral Palsy as well as other neurological disorders and learning difficulties. I have had extensive post graduate training in specialised assessment and therapeutic techniques including sensory integration (SIPT Certified), neuro-disability and bio-mechanical approaches.
I have worked in both special and mainstream schools as well as preparing young people for adulthood. I have extensive experience working with families within the most complex situations including those going through SEN tribunals. This involves preparing detailed reports and attending tribunals as an expert witness.
I have substantial experience as a Manager and Professional Lead for Occupational Therapists for over 16 years and was the Lead Commissioner for Children with Disabilities within a London Borough. I have done extensive teaching from running parents workshops to international conferences.
I have over 30 years experience in a range of specialist paediatric areas. I also have a Masters in Child Studies.
