Harriet’s journey with autism spectrum disorders began when her own children were diagnosed with
autism. This has motivated her in the direction of SEN education and to set up charitable
organisations in Surrey and Ghana to support families where a child has additional needs.

‘I am a firm believer that every child matters and deserves the very best. We have a duty to provide
our children and young people with a nurturing environment which promotes holistic development
and irresistible learning opportunities on a daily basis’.
