Expertise summary

My research and expertise is in autism and the best educational options for children and young people on the autism spectrum, with a focus on girls, anxiety, social and emotional functioning. The support needed by autistic teachers is also a particular focus.

Topics I can comment on include autism and girls schooling; home-schooling; alternative provision; autism and anxiety; impact on learning and on post-16 opportunities; interventions, preparation and support for teachers in inclusive schools.

In my previous role as the National Director of Aspect Practice (Autism Spectrum Australia) I was regularly interviewed by the media about our work and responding to news stories. I have appeared as an expert on ABC news and discussion programmes and written for the print media. I am media trained.
