I am a Special Educational Needs and Disabilities specialist with SEND (former) classroom experience of more than 16 years (mild and complex SEND). I am an associate lecturer in Education, Inclusion and SEND at the University of Derby. I also work as a researcher at Goldsmiths, University of London - focusing on inclusion and equality in education. I am a PhD Candidate at the Dept. of Ed. Studies at Goldsmiths University and my PhD thesis is on LBGT+ inclusion with children and young people with SEND. I have a number of publications on the topics of neurodiversity, disability, LGBT+ inclusion with pupils with SEND and employment opportunities for young people with SEND.

I offer SEND-related consultation and training to schools and other types of organisations/individuals with an interest in SEND and/or LGBT+ inclusion for children and young people with SEND. I work with schools, charities and anyone supporting young people with SEND and young people with SEND with LGBT+ identities. Please, see my testimonials to get better understanding of the consultancy work I do.
