Welcome! My name is Florence Neville (you can call me Flo!) and I am doing a PhD exploring the need for autistic people – like myself – to have the time and space to be ourselves.
I am a co-founder of AutismHWB.com, a health and wellbeing resource site for and written by autistic adults. The site is run by myself and four other autistic individuals, each with different but complementary expertise in health and wellbeing. We are always looking for autistic adults who would like to contribute a blog post – more details on the site!
I offer in-person training in improving autistic wellbeing and in supporting neurodivergent people in schools and universities.
I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed Flo’s session. Probably one of my favourite sessions we’ve had so far on the PGCE. So insightful, inspiring and invaluable to our practice. It was so useful to be reminded of the struggle some pupils face in a classroom setting and hearing from an honest perspective such as hers.Jesse Ilic, PGSE student, University of Bristol.
Florence has an extremely engaging way of offering ideas to Autistic individuals without being prescriptive or making people feel a failure. She clearly knows her stuff but is able to deliver complex ideas in ways that make sense. She draws on her own and others experiences as well as being informed by academic and current research findings. She is a very interesting speaker and I wholeheartedly recommend herDr Linda Buchan Consultant Clinical Psychologist, Founder and Director of Axia ASD
Great Course. Having a trainer with inside knowledge helps to relate to the training. It was easier to identify with the subject
Florence was very knowledgeable and participated with the groups during the group work. Her delivery was humorous when needed and kept people engaged throughout.
