For many years I was active in various fields of special needs education, mainly in youth and adult education. I lived and worked in Scotland for almost 15 years.
Based on my research work “Why verbs are green” on autism, I develop my lecture and training courses. Since this research project I have been particularly concerned with systemic approaches. My interest now is to share my knowledge with the teaching and care profession.
In the future I want to shed light on autism and make practical approaches known.
