“In the time that Stephanie has been working with my school, I have been able to see a sustained improvement in the provision offered. 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. The excellent provision for pupils with SEND, for which Stephanie’s support was a key element, was also verified by my School Improvement Partner. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable about her area of specialism, she is adept at communicating her expertise to a wide range of people. Whether supporting staff working one-to-one with ASD pupils, class teachers, senior leaders or parents, Stephanie is able to communicate effectively and efficiently, offering sound advice backed by her own considerable knowledge, experience and current research practices.”

"Each session provides a wealth of ideas and support for the teachers and support staff to immediately employ in their practice. As a result, the children with ASD are supported more effectively. Meetings with the SENCo and senior leaders also increase their knowledge of ASD within a wider school context”

“I feel I know much better how to support a child with ASD. While I understand each child is different, I feel I have discussed and been exposed to a very wide variety of strategies and now have a wide knowledge base to draw on”
