Sarah Hampton

I’ve been involved in the support and assessment of people with Autism for nearly 20 years. I have a degree in Psychology which focused upon; intellectual disabilities, Autism, ADHD and Dyslexia. I followed this up with a Post Graduate Certificate of Education specialising in disability and access to curriculum through literacy programmes. Shortly after I became lead teacher in London for children with ASD in mainstream education and an educator for teachers in this area. In 2004 I became the Director of Outreach Services at Oaklynn Special School in Auckland, New Zealand. I created and delivered training and support to over 400 mainstream teachers. I work very closely with both parents and teachers. My goal is simple to help the Autistic child thrive in a mainstream educational environment whilst making parents feel supported and teachers successful. This approach combines best practice from several disciplines to provide a multi layered approach. I’m passionate about children with ASD attending mainstream schools and work hard to make sure they succeed.
