Nadine is particularly interested in working with parents of children with ASC, supporting them after diagnosis to help them make a positive start on their autism journey. She believes that it’s helpful to think of diagnosis as a discovery of difference – a different way of thinking, perceiving and relating in the world. Nadine aims to help parents to understand the world from this new perspective.​ Nadine is a specialist by training and also by experience, having a wonderful son who is autistic. Because of her experiences and personality, you can be sure that you will never be judged as a parent.

Nadine has a keen interest in mental health research and publishes papers in high quality, peer-reviewed journals, further highlighting her expertise. See below for a selection of her most recent publications:
