About Educational Support Consultancy

Specialising in Educational Support Consultancy with a particular focus on behaviour support for neurodiverse children and young people; training programmes for parents, schools and services

I am a Behaviour and Learning specialist, working with children and adolescents. I offer educational consultancy and support to individuals and their families; parent consultancy for learning, behaviour and socialisation issues; training for parents in neurodevelopmental issues; and coaching support for children and young people with neurodevelopmental issues. I also offer neurodevelopmental training courses for schools and services.

After studying Zoology and Genetics at Sheffield University, I trained as a secondary science and PE teacher.  I taught in London, Newcastle and Washington DC, becoming first Head of Science and then a Deputy Head Teacher. From 1996 – 2002, I was Head of the Centre Academy School, the first specialist school in the UK for children with ADHD/ODD.  This wide-ranging experience has given me a balanced perspective on the issues facing students, families, teachers and schools regarding Neurodiversity and learning behaviour and socialisation differences.  I currently work with schools and school support systems, including Social Services, Health Services, the police and foster carers.

In addition to my work with families, schools and support services, I work nationally and internationally as a presenter and consultant in behaviour, learning and motivation.  I provide Neurodiversity Consultancy and Training for the workplace environment.

 I have had over ten books published on the subjects of ADHD, SEND and challenging behaviours and other resources for educators and parents include pre-recorded webinars.
