I am a full-time PhD student at the University of Birmingham and I work part-time as a freelance trainer/consultant in a number of roles relating to parents of disabled children/children labelled with Special Educational Needs, as well as supporting the development of parent carer forums and parent participation/co-production.

I launched this website in September 2020 to both provide a record of my academic achievements and engagement, and to launch a blog about my developing research. I have struggled to find the time to post much on it since then, but have a renewed energy and recognise the benefits that putting my developing thought out into the open can have. So I am trying again to get the blog up and running… bear with me though!

Also, please do feel free to get in touch, as I really welcome contact from anyone who is interested in discussing my developing research – whether that is other parents of disabled children or people who are interested for academic reasons.
