About the creator of Check The Map

I've worked with people who have learning, physical and sensory disabilities for 17 years, in classrooms, colleges, nurseries, residential homes, hospitals and swimming pools... supporting, teaching and having a lot of fun!

I worked initially with adults with mental ill health, then taught mainstream pupils with SEN in Poland, and managed a supported work environment in the voluntary sector for adults with learning disabilities.

My students relied on symbol-support to make sense of text, and I learned to create symbol-supported documents. A fan of the potential of symbols from the outset, I learned to make information really accessible to non-readers and now use symbols regularly with people all over the world. This led to employment with Widgit Software who produce the Widgit Literacy Symbols, which they've kindly agreed to let us use around this website.

My experience in the use of Assistive Technologies has been enhanced by working across the UK for Inclusive Technology and in London with CENMAC, assessing pupils and delivering training in alternative communication. I work as an Educational and Child Psychologist and also write for websites and journals on psychology, SEN / ICT topics.
