Simply Equality Podcast
In March 2021, Sarah Stephenson-Hunter invited me onto her podcast, The Simply Equality podcast, which focuses on the intersection between queerness and disability. Have a listen below, or on Sarah’s host site: https://www.buzzsprout.com/1205351/8152632
Autistic Conflict Resolution
Autistic people are vulnerable to being involved in conflicts, both with other autistics and with our neurotypical peers because of our innate differences to them. Conflict resolution is difficult between anyone, but the intuitive strategies commonly used are not fit for purpose with autistic people. I am highly experienced in resolving conflicts with and between autistic people. Please contact me if you have questions.
I am currently working as an autistic mentor and autistic PA, on top of my work as an educator. Please contact me if you want to find out more.

I am involved in the Neurodiversity in Publishing network. If you are a writer who identifies as neurodiverse or a neurodiverse publishing professional, contact Lydia and myself on firstname.lastname@example.org
