Making education work for the next generation of neurodivergent pupils

My school experience


The Neurodiversity Perspective

  1. Bullying
  2. Inaccessible work
  3. School environments
  4. Rigidity


Doctor Who is a Time Lord. Princess Entrapta is a scientist-inventor full of autistic joy. Both are good role models in some ways, but maybe not in others.

Inaccessible work

School environment




My most relevant writing:

  1. Neurodiversity is for Everyone
  2. Starting Points for Understanding Autism
  3. Autistic Skill Sets and spiky profiles (also relevant to other types of neurodivergence)
  4. We’re here. We’re weird. Get used to it.
  5. More on autism
