I have vast professional knowledge as well as personal lived experience of Autism Spectrum, Pathological Demand Avoidance, Fabricated and Induced Illness, Special Educational Needs and Mental Health. I share my stories, along with those of others so that with ‘Professionals’ and Senior Managers can have a real-life account of how services feel for those that use them. As a Parent Carer Rep, I represent all SEND parent carers in Worcestershire at high level meetings and work alongside the Local Authority, Health and Care Trust and other agencies to give them a better understanding of the needs of a wider demographic. This in turn has a positive impact on the services that they design and the people they employ with the hope to shift the culture of understanding towards disability need, appropriate considerations made, and a deep coproduction of services required by families and individuals.
