I thought that it would be helpful to share what I have achieved with other professionals. I have been writing about my research and suggestions on a blog called Being Well Autistic. 

The web address is 

I really hope that it is helpful who see a lot of stress and anxiety amongst their learners, the aim is to try to reduce this level in order to better prepare our learners for future health and happiness.

Hi Nic

Thank you for sharing your blog, some really useful advice and good practice that you’re passing on! Just to let you know I amended the hyperlink on your post as it didn’t work.

We have 2 education groups that I'm going to share your post with as I think the members would be really interested in what you're doing:

Education Professionals in Primary Schools

Education Professionals in Secondary Schools

You might also want to join these groups too.

Thanks again for sharing that with us.

All the best,
