She also supports foster carers and families who are caring for children who are on the autism spectrum, have ADHD, conduct disorder, ODD, OCD, sensory processing difficulties and other learning difficulties and disabilities. Her role involves advising on parenting skills and undertaking assessments of the child’s needs within the home. Janice works in schools nationally, training and offering advice to SENCOs and teachers. She also liaises with schools to advise on consistency of support with foster placements.

Janice is passionate about helping all people to understand the world through the eyes of an adult or child with autism spectrum conditions and helping those who are marginalised or vulnerable. During her years of working with children and adults on the spectrum she has developed a number of strategies to support them to control their anxieties and manage the stress of being autistic in a neurotypical world.
