I'll be taking early retirement/severance from the University at the end of August. Exciting times.

In the meantime this telling doodle was drawn by @D0V0S0 on Twitter. Drawn whilst David was on Tizard's 'Understanding Autism' massive open online course.

You can find my Instagram account here though I swing between having it private and public - I'm fickle like that - but you might be lucky!

I've been meaning to rework a talk I gave in Manchester earlier this year for several weeks but lacked time.

Very pleased to announce my own book on challenging behaviour will be published by Jessica Kingsley in November 2019. It's available for pre-order and is on Amazon.

I am currently writing a follow up book about practice leadership in services (working title 'Supporting People') which will hopefully be completed by December 2019. I've also plans for a third title, to be written in early 2020.

I ran two sessions at the British Institute of Learning Disability Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) conference in Birmingham. It was great to catch up with so many people and hear about their work & research. If you navigate here you can read and download all the presentations of all the speakers.
