Autism Awareness_04

Having studied the Law for many years, later working in a Law Office for many more together with my Law Degrees and English Degree I am one voice of many in the Special Needs Community. I want to use my voice and academic background to help raise awareness of the realities of parenting, living with and loving children with special needs in Ireland today.

I want to raise Awareness on a Public platform to help parent’s who feel they cannot speak up just yet.

Here you will find progressive Media Links that have afforded me the opportunity to raise my voice on behalf of the great many parents in the Special Needs Community; who fight everyday to have their voices heard as advocates for their beautiful children.
