• An understanding of a range of the tools and techniques available to parents wanting to support their child at home.
Workshop leader Karen Ferguson is the Founder and Principal Trainer for Linrow Education. Karen started teaching science at a mainstream secondary school in 2000. She then moved into the SEND environment working with children and parents to help them overcome their disabilities and give them the skills to achieve their full potential. Karen was appointed as a Specialist Leader in Education for Autism and this allowed her to disseminate good practice and deliver SEND training. She offers various condition specific training, including ASC, ADHD and Dyslexia.
Karen has continued her personal professional development over the years: she has a Masters Degree in Education and Level 2 Dyslexia, ADHD, Autism and PDA qualifications. She is currently working towards her Doctorate in Education.
