I am a freelance deafblind trainer,consultant,transcriber and teacher. All my services are focussed on raising awareness, sharing knowledge, understanding and experience of diversity,
disability and deafblindness.
My practice is informed by personal and professional knowledge and experience gained from both being deafblind and studying and working within the social care field.
I have also been active in campaigning on disability and deafblind issues to raise awareness of the attitudinal, physical and environmental barriers in society.
I have a wide range of experience in delivering presentations and training sessions from a personal perspective of disability and deafblindness. This includes: managing
assistance and support, communication skills, guide dog awareness, deafblind awareness and deafblind manual sign training. More on Training and
