Katie is one of our two co-chairs. She is a single full-time mum of two girls. Her eldest has verbal dyspraxia, autism and ADHD and is in mainstream school. Her youngest has no special educational needs, but does have various health issues. She has had major open heart surgery and suffers from extreme migraines, Raynauds syndrome and hyper mobility.
Katie has only recently become a trustee and and parent carer representative, and attends other meetings, e.g. health and education subgroups, when time permits. She is currently trying to strengthen our links with local parent support groups by setting up an Affiliate Membership scheme.
