Wendy Usher, founder of The Play Doctors and Author of 13 books, has delivered training for over 30 years. In addition to her professional experience teaching children with additional needs, she was a Government Inclusion Consultant working with Local Authorities.  Primarily Wendy is a parent of a now grown up daughter who happens to have a number of disabilities including autism, dyspraxia, dyslexia, learning difficulties, epilepsy and sensory integration disorders.  She uses all of this experience to write and deliver ‘real life’ training to anyone living or working with children who need a little extra support.

There are over 50 courses offered through ITA and Wendy is happy to come to your setting to deliver training or speak at conferences or run workshops.  She has been a speaker at the national Autism Show for the past 6 years.
