Hi, my name is Lynn.
I’m a person created by God. I love Jesus and became a Christian after an amazing encounter with God in 1989. And then…wife, mum to two twenty-somethings, a specialist autism teacher, writer and escaper to the mountains of the English Lake District.
I work as a freelance specialist support teacher/consultant to churches, schools and other organisations. I am passionate about making churches accessible to all disabled people and anyone with additional needs. I want to help people understand each other and how to reach out, help people know they belong and give them practical resources and help to make it happen. I believe in ‘Nothing About me, without me’ and have a group of friends with many different abilities that join me in helping churches to think about and include them.
I’m also a writer – of this award winning blog (am still excited about that!) and of the blog on www.reachoutasc.com/blog (all about autism).
I am the author of a few books for teachers and a board game.
I am working on a similar resource for churches…watch this space!
I try to make complicated things simple and share them with others. I am a bit too enthusiastic sometimes but passionate about seeing people with autism spectrum conditions and people with learning disabilities grow and learn and live lives they love.
I am also passionate about sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ in accessible ways, and telling others we are all created by God and loved very much by him…no matter what hinders us in life.
ALL opinions are my own and I am not pretending that I can help everyone or know everything!
