Parent Support

Being a parent is hard, and being a parent to an autistic child can be even harder.

I've supported tens of thousands of parents to understand their children better, and I know it isn't easy. 

As a parent, you're doing your best and you can often worry about how your child is going to cope growing up or who will look after them. You can also feel like you've made many mistakes and worry about if your child will ever feel for you or understand how hard you're trying.

It can often feel like you have to fight to get even the tiniest of support and like things are never going to get any easier. But they can. 

It's frustrating as often it's lots of small changes that have big impacts over time. But to know what things to do can feel impossible. With waiting lists being long and professional support not guaranteed, it's hard to know what the right decisions are.

Being autistic myself I can help explain what your children might be experiencing. I've also supported hundreds of parents, and autistic people, so you're in understanding hands.

I've read 100's of EHCPs and other documents.
I've supported EHCP mediations, conversations with schools, OTs, SALT, and psychiatrists.

I've supported 100's of autistic children and young adults to move out of psychiatric hospitals.

In this work, I spent 3 years delivering Barnardo’s Cygnet, which is one course you might get referred onto after your child's diagnosis. I have also delivered courses on ADHD to parents for 2 years and well as delivering hundreds of one off sessions around sensory processing and disordered eating with parent-carer forums.

Since 2020 I've been working with Bristol Autism Support delivering sessions and courses online and across Bristol and North Somerset. You can see pictures of me with the BAS team above and countless articles from me on their website. If you'd like to sign up to one of these courses you find out more on the Bristol Autism Support website here.
