Why Tune into ASD?
My name is Jessica Kuffour and I am the Founder and Director of Tune into ASD. I am an experienced keynote speaker, consultant, educator and facilitator with over 20 years of experience working with children on the Autistic Spectrum and their families. My considerable experience has been acquired through working in schools as an educator, family worker and consultant; being a Special Needs mentor, life and music coach; working and managing family services in the NGO sector; being a mother of an adult son and teenage daughter both diagnosed with ASD. I am the founder of Grace’s Space an Autism charity; delivering services and activities for hundreds of families. I have developed many resources and services, particularly for SEND (Special Education Needs and Disabilities) children and disadvantaged families who have been transformed by these interventions within education and therapy.
My children have powerful stories of transformation from being unable to access the National curriculum due to the severity of their needs to successfully attending mainstream schools, achieving outstanding GCSE and A level results and attending their first choice University. My husband and I tuned into our children to discover what they needed to fulfil their potential. We worked with their schools and external support systems to implement strategies and effectively support them on their journey. We taught them to believe that anything is possible!
I have seen and been a part of the transformation of many lives including my own family as we learnt to connect, accept and support them to succeed. No limits!
