“Sally is a very inspirational speaker who held my full attention throughout. Her passion for her work and her empathy and understanding of the problems facing children on the Autism Spectrum and their parents/carers/ teachers was fantastic. Her humour and ability to relate the topics discussed to her own experience made for an informative and very interesting course and I feel that I have learned loads. “
