about me 

Hello Everyone! I’m Yvonne and I am a mum to a wonderful son, who is autistic and has a rare chromosome disorder: a micro duplication of chromosome 16p11.2.

I am also a blogger on all thing’s autism:

·        Autism friendly places to visit

·        Education and resources

·        My personal experiences

·        Tips and Strategies 

With my previous experience of being a 1:1 Learning Support Assistant infused with my creative ability to produce visual learning resources; I want to help create more opportunity for flexible learning and raise awareness of Autism/ASD and rare disorders.


My son has inspired me to blog so through my blogging, I want to inspire you.
