My goal is to reduce anxiety for all Neurotypes through awareness, acceptance and understanding.
Hello, I'm Tigger Pritchard, Awesomely Neurodivergent and an Autistic and Pathological Demand Avoidance, Advocate, Consultant and Trainer based in the Southwest of England.
I've got over thirty-five years of professional and personal experience of working alongside, learning from and advocating for neurodivergent individuals. I've done this in many different ways: support worker, advocate, teacher, facilitator, trainer, manager, lecturer and friend. (For further information, please see my LinkedIn profile.) Plus, I have a lifetime of Autistic experience, which I'm still exploring.
We're all on a journey, my understanding of what it means to be Neurodivergent has and will continue to change. I do my very best to keep up to date, my thoughts are continually being reframed and will always do so, as new thoughts, ideas and approaches emerge.
This is all linked to a very personal insight regarding a world I'm so passionate about. My focus is raising understanding and acceptance of Neurodiversity; accepting people for who they are and not trying to fit them into any "Neurotypical box" and understanding that one size does not fit all.
Using my extensive experience, knowledge, teaching practice and personal insight, I pass on my skills through my training and consultancy work both face to face and online by supporting individuals, families, corporate organisations and educational settings on a consultancy basis.
Feel free to get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you.
