Samantha Horsfield

I have 25 years of experience working with my own twins who have high needs, working in schools and other children’s settings and supporting adults through my company for the last 5 years.  I am a level 5 qualified care manager.

Living Outside the Box (My life as a Behaviour Detective)

I will be talking about the journey of discovery that I went on with my twins and how I started off trying to teach them to change their behaviour but ended up having to learn to change my behaviour.  I talk about societal norms and how hard wired we are to think that people only have fun in a certain way.  I would like the delegates to leave the session with a new found positivity and a nonjudgemental attitude to enabling our people to live the lives THEY want! I will also talk a bit about my company and what it is we offer.
