I originally trained as an Occupational Therapist specialising in working with children. My experience in this role has, over the years, provided me with the opportunity to share my skills and knowledge through the delivery of CPD training courses to practitioners within Education, Health and Social Care sectors. As a result of this work I was fortunate to be able to write and produce a number of books and resources to support children within the field of Early Years and Special Educational needs. Joining the University of South Wales was a natural extension of this experience.
