Who is Soli?

here’s a brief bio to let you know what I’m all about..

  • Soli is a fully qualified teacher with some 30 years experience; specialising in Inclusion, ADHD, Autism, Developmental Delay, Communication and Learning Difficulties, Down’s Syndrome and Dyslexia.
  • She was previously Special Needs Coordinator SENCO at a large primary school in London.

  • She is trained in Makaton signing and Mental Health First Aid.
  • Soli has organised and run many residential trips for children with disabilities and challenging behaviour. An environment where children, away from the confines of a classroom, can flourish and excel.
  • Her son has ADHD and so knows what it’s like to struggle and feel isolated. She battled for years to get much needed support in school and to get the right help for your son.
  • She is the author of a book Five Reasons Why Most Schools Fail Your Child With Special Needs – And What You Can Do About It. Read many 5* reviews on Amazon.
  • She has also produced  “The Secret To Behaviour Success which gives the tools to make personalised visual resources to help avoid meltdowns and tantrums.
  • Her consultancy Yellow Sun delivers support and advice to parents of children with special needs and challenging behaviour. She offers 1:1 bespoke coaching as well as representing families at meetings. She hosts a live Q and A session every week.
  • Soli provides training and workshops to schools, charities and nurseries to promote understanding of special needs, inclusion and differentiation. She has produced a short guide to accompany the training “5 Reasons Why Some Children Fail To Make Progress At School”.
  • Every month Soli runs meetings The Warrior Mums’ Club – mums who to get together over a cup of tea, chat and support one another, swap ideas and successful strategies. Soli delivers a brief training on an SEN topic. 
  • Finally, Soli wants to give back. So she donates a proportion of her income to projects that directly help struggling families.
