Free E-Books


I have created the following e-books to support the blogs I write for The PDA Space.

These e-books are a free community resource to share some of the key information provided by the fantastic work of The PDA Space alongside their guest speakers, neurodivergent advocates, and health and education professionals, who all generously share their knowledge and experiences.

Please feel free to download and share if you find it valuable. 

Please credit the original work of those delivering the webinars/training/workshops with The PDA Space.

Learning About Neurodiversity at School (padlet)
As part of the LEANS Community impact project, the LEANS team has challenged the public to set up community-led venues for interested people to meet one another, talk about the LEANS educational resources, and consider wider issues around neurodiversity and education. I have set up a Discord group called 'NICER' to support this and as a space to discuss Neurodivergent Inclusive Collaborative Education Routes and share ways to be NICER: promoting understanding, compassion, empathy to meet the needs of all learners.
