STELLA WATERHOUSE - AUTISM EXPERT
As a second generation educator and autism awareness expert I share my personal and professional experience and understanding of the autism spectrum and the many challenges that people with autism and their families face in their daily lives.
My goal is to develop resources that will offer practical advice, insight and solutions to parents and teachers so that the child's life is enriched and supported and family life is enhanced.
I first came across autism in the late 1960s when I met three very different children, all of whom shared the same diagnosis. I went on to spend much of my career working with both children and adults with autism and Asperger's Syndrome as a teacher, caregiver and finally, as a Deputy Principal of a residential community for adults with ASD.
I began researching autism in 1990 and am a published author of several books including A Positive Approach to Autism which attracted good reviews from such well known autism experts as Donna Williams and Paul Shattock OBE. I have also authored a series of concise but informative books for parents and teachers, and am currently completing the second book in my series
