Most of my schooling was spent off the spectrum so to speak. I have been trusted by others on the spectrum with their experiences in order to gain a greater understanding of the challenges children, teenagers and adults can face. Taking part in the school systems in both Wales and The Netherlands has taught me multiple life lessons’.
Sometimes solutions for seemingly impossible problems are as simple as observing and listening to the young person. We all need to learn to listen more often and I hope I can support development of this through my work.
