As an expert in SEND and Inclusion, he provides advice to many schools and settings around the areas of behaviour, bullying, children’s mental health, autism spectrum condition, dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties. As part of his consultancy role Andrew is also a highly acclaimed educational trainer, where he has written and or delivered a vast array of courses to a range of people and organisations.
