Special Networks came to life in early 2019 after several years of connecting and providing professional support to each other. Our research psychologist, Jamie and Clare W first worked together as part of a local authority autism outreach team, where Clare A was a dyslexia specialist and SENCO.
Clare A went on to build her own support team in an independent secondary school, bringing with her Clare W (Speech and Language), Judy (Occupational Therapy) and Elizabeth (Educational Psychologist)
Flossie and Clare W share a background in Speech and Language Therapy. They connected over joint supervision over the years after moving from the state to independent sector. They agreed on the importance of teamwork and the need for an established network.
Our strength as a team is that we are multi-disciplinary. We bring together years of experience and a passion for improving the lives of children and adults who are ‘different’. Our network continues to grow beyond our founder members but our goals remain the same, to offer simple, sustainable support to those who need it.
