Dani Richman BPhil in Autism (children) (Birmingham University).

Dani Richman BPhil in Autism (children) (Birmingham University)

Dani’s experience of working with children and young people with autism and related conditions, such as learning and sensory processing difficulties, spans over a decade, and she has consolidated this with an autism degree.

Dani’s style of working is child/young person and family centred. She adopts an eclectic approach incorporating numerous evidence-based interventions such as: Intensive Interaction, PECS and TEACCH. She also has had training in Attention Autism, is competent in using Colourful Semantics, writes Social Stories, uses Sensory Integrations techniques and has extensive knowledge about the SCERTS framework. The techniques used are very much dependent on the individual’s profile and the family’s requirements. 

Dani has sound knowledge of some of the challenges individuals encounter when they have an autism diagnosis. These include issues with:

  • Feeding
  • Toileting
  • Sleeping
  • Emotional regulation 

From Dani’s child development background, autism degree, experiences and continuous training, she is able to design and deliver a bespoke programme for the individual and family. She prides herself in ensuring activities are purposeful, predictable, desirable and meaningful to enhance relationships and learning. 

For Dani, working in partnership with families is fundamental as research suggests this promotes positive long term outcomes. She obtained a certificate in Counselling Skills in 2007, enabling her to support individuals and families emotionally and practically.

Dani’s experiences have shown her the importance and benefits of collaborative working. For this reason, she liaises with nurseries/schools/agencies and other professionals to ensure there is continuity. She also delivers training for educators and other practitioners in their settings.

Dani has experience in supporting families in writing their advice for their child’s EHCP, recognising that Local Authorities appear to have differences in their format/process. She is competent in writing reports as supporting evidence for EHCP and housing. Also, she helps signpost families to different services for additional guidance such as support in completing the lengthy DLA application.

Dani hopes to empower those she works with, therefore building a trusting and positive working relationship with both the child/young person and family is the priority. This always remains at the heart of her practice.
