Hi, my name is Jess. I live in South Wales and teach within the ‘Autism Base’ in a special needs school in Ebbw Vale. I live with my Maths teacher husband Jon, my 4 month old son William and rescue dog Henson.
I started my teaching career in a fantastic special needs school in London where my love of PECS, visual schedules and a sensory curriculum began. I have taught some absolutely amazing young people and worked with some inspirational adults who have enabled me to promote excellent individualised education. I am forever thankful to those who showed me how to teach young people with autism… and shared laughter and tears after the 3.30 bell (often over a glass of wine!).
After sharing some resources on TES and following some very interesting educators on twitter, I have decided if I can help just a handful of people by producing a blog and sharing resources it must be worth doing!
I don’t proclaim to be an expert in all areas of autism and I am constantly trying to improve on my own practise. Please feel free to contact me and leave comments where possible.
Happy reading and downloading!
