Public speaking and training
I’m an online content creator and public speaker. I’m an autistic Mother of two autistic children and as such I belong to a very autistic family. I am passionate about helping to support autistic people.
Since my diagnosis in 2015 I’ve been working hard learning, researching, writing and speaking about autism.
There are around 700,000 autistic people in the UK, if you also consider their families that means autism is a part of daily life for 2.8 million people.
I offer talks on a variety of topics related to autism. Choose from my list of prepared topics below. Alternatively contact me if there’s a different topic you would like me to talk about and I can write something specifically for your event.
- Autism & Mental Health: strategies, systems and support (30 minutes)
- It’s OK Not To Cry – autism and bereavement. (30 minutes)
- Meltdowns & Shutdowns (30 minutes)
- Parenting autistic children (30 minutes)
- An Autistic Life – my experiences (30 minutes)
- 10 Ways To Reduce Anxiety (30 minutes)
*All talks can be followed by a questions and answers session
Training For Educators:
- Educating autistic children – training for educators and support workers (45 minutes followed by Q&A)
I can also provide autism training for schools, workplaces, and other organisations.

Ella attended our school today, two talks- 1 to parents and 1 to staff. She is a major advocate for autism, specifically autistic girls. She speaks about her life in such an insightful manner. We had great feedback from everyone. The Anderson school (National Autistic Society school)
I just wanted to say thank you so much for your talk at yesterday’s session. The participants universally put you down as the best part of the training, and several said the training could be improved by allocating more time to you! Gloucester Council training event
