About Amandine Mourière

I'm a free-lance autism and learning disability consultant and an associate of the Intensive Interaction Institute.


I have experience of working in a variety of settings with children, families and adults with learning disabilities and/or autism.  I have worked in schools, community centres and with families in their homes offering support, guidance and training.  

I aim to provide a warm, flexible and sensitive approach to my consultancy service.  I'm incredibly passionate in my want to help and enrich the lives of those with learning disabilities and/or autism.  I work with families to help them understand the basis of Intensive Interaction, the techniques and how this can enable individuals to make progress with their social-communication, their emotional, cognitive and social development.

I developed a passion for Autism whilst working in schools as a teaching assistant, I went on to study further and I subsequently completed my Masters in Autism in 2014.
