Claire delivers our Autism training. Being able to give a first hand  perspective to training, as well as professional knowledge is vital. Nobody knows Autism like an Autistic person! Claire has the very fortunate position of not only being a professional who has worked for over 20 years with Autistic adults and children, in residential and family settings, as well as in an advocate role, she is also a parent of an Autistic son, and a daughter with learning difficulties and SPD. Claire also has Aspergers herself alongside physical and neurological impairments giving her the opportunity to explore Autism from 3 sides, as a practitioner, a carer and Autistic adult, with many years of positive and negative experiences to draw from

Claire also delivers Disability equality and awareness, being a P/T wheelchair user, with neurological impairments, and physical disability, and having a myriad of chronic illnesses gives an insight into life as a disabled person. This perspective is vital for delivering disability equality training.

 We are experienced in delivering learning to people of all abilities – when we ask if any learners have additional needs, we do actually make adjustments to our training and delivery so please ask!!Telephone Claire today on 07766 142 468 or email info@positivedifferenceiow.co.uk
