With over 24 years experience in the area of autism, I bring a wealth of knowledge, passion and commitment to every family.

My own autism identification means that the difficulties are not only examined from an educated, professional perspective but also from the unique view of an actually autistic adult.

If you have any particular questions regarding any of the services below, please don't hesitate to contact me.
General Autism Consultancy
Welcome to my Autism Parent Consultancy and Support Service, where I prioritize your journey as an autism parent. With over 24 years of experience in the field, including 9 years as a lecturer at University College Cork, my expertise is built upon a unique blend of personal and professional perspectives. As a parent of an autistic child and an individual on the spectrum myself, I understand the challenges and nuances that come with raising and supporting autistic individuals. My consultancy covers a broad range of areas, with specialized skills in emotional literacy and regulation, anxiety management, addressing behavioural concerns, and enhancing social understanding. I am committed to empowering parents with knowledge, strategies, and personalised support to help them navigate the complex landscape of autism parenting. By offering two session types i.e. individual one-to-one sessions for individuals on the spectrum, as well as parent sessions, I allow parents to choose an individualised approach to social skills development for their child and give the parent the opportunity to gain personalised instruction in training and advancement of skills in both the home and community settings.
Whatever the issue, my 24 years of experience ensures that there is always help at hand. Contact me to see how I can help with your child's journey. The issue does not need to be specific to the social or home setting, I have consulted with over 50 schools in the Munster area and I am happy to facilitate intervention which forms a broad base for support. I can provide consultancy on best practice educational strategies for children in both the mainstream and specialised school settings.
