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

At times, I know it can seem difficult to know how to best help your 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.

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.

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

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!

“In the time that Steph 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"
