Hi, I'm Kieran, a Lecturer in Psychology with a passion for autism research, particularly its impact on quality of life. With my 20 years of experience and over 25,000 hours working with children, adolescents, and adults with autism, alongside their families, I am in a unique position to understand the challenges and opportunities that autism presents. Since 2015, my journey has intertwined with educational settings, where I've supported teachers and education aides to provide evidence-based strategies to support autistic students. I strive to translate this expertise into actionable strategies for educators, fostering inclusive environments where every student thrives. My goal is to continue pioneering approaches that celebrate neurodiversity and empower those on the autism spectrum.
