Founder of PAGS®
I am a Qualified Teacher with 17 years of special needs experience with students on the autism spectrum and challenging behaviour. In 2014 I earned my Masters degree in Autism at the University of Birmingham.
Before opening Felser Training and Consulting in 2017, I worked 4 years as a Lead Teacher in a Centre of Excellence for students with severe and profound learning difficulties, autism, physical disabilities and complex medical needs.
I am passionate about bringing considered and quality education to all students with autism and I devote a lot of time researching and staying up-to-date on the latest brain development discoveries to make sure I offer the best support for them. I am registered with the Society of Education Consultants UK.
The concept of PAGS® was initiated by myself, and is now a continued collaboration with a group of professionals; pooling a wealth of experience.
