Please do get in touch if you would like me to come to your school or training event to talk about issues around inclusion or the teaching of young people with sld / pmld.

I would  also really love to hear your thoughts on any of the issues raised in the books, and I hope this website will be a place where people can share their own experience of personalising the curriculum for young people with complex needs.  So feel free to contact me using the online form or e-mail me on
