I have over 18 years experience of working in learning disability. I have worked to support those with additional needs in independent living and in employment. However, for the last 12 years I have been working in education provision for young adults with complex needs, creating learning plans and resources, as well as training staff in teaching and learning strategies. I have worked both in Scotland and internationally, in India, where I worked with families to develop learning plans, and with local NGOs and schools in training staff and raising awareness of learning disability. I am particularly interested in issues around sensory input and how this input can be used to enhance learning, as well as in supporting young people, and their families, in the transition into adult service.
