The following is a collection of some of my most recent work. I’ve been lucky enough to have my own private work published in an array of media. Read through the samples below and feel free to get in touch to learn more about how we can work together.  Then have a look at my new ecourses in support of non speaking learners with autism, coming in spring 2018!

My Professional Services

Commitment to each child's learning as he or she is!

Thank you for your interest in my work. I provide a diverse array of services so that you can find the one that matches your specific needs. Feel free to have a look around and contact me with any questions.


Keynote and ProD workshops

Inspirational and Practical!

I am a talented speaker who inspires audiences.  I am also noted for being a practical visionary.  Whether it is a keynote speech or a ProD workshop as long as it is related to wonder, imagination and creativity in learning, I'm your gal!

Safe&Sound Protocol

Understanding what being safe means

I provide this service because I understand the importance of supporting the challenges the children can have such as hypersensitive hearing.  This can affect many aspects of learning. Developed by Dr. Stephen Porges, the SSP is a five-day auditory intervention ( 1 hour a day) designed to reduce stress and auditory sensitivity while enhancing social engagement and resilience. It is suitable for persons from 2 and up!  Please contact me to discuss.

Sensory Open Learning Approach for Autism

Always assuming competence

I truly believe in the  competence of learners with Autism and that it is our role as educators to find the approaches that will help them become all that they can be. I have developed the sensory open learning approach based on working with non speaking learners.  As a learning consultant I can advise on problems your child may have in learning.  Contact me to discuss.
