Congratulations to Harriette Carpenter who was been nominated for the Great Autism Practice Award and is now a finalist! Harriet was nominated for this award by a fellow colleague who said the following;

"I have nominated Hariette for an award due to her outstanding contribution to communication in Starbrook and the work she has done with Amber so that she can access the community in a way that she wasn't able to before."

This awarding body who present this award is 'National Learning Disability and Autism Awards' who describe this particular award below; 

"The overriding goal of good autism practice is to enhance quality of life for individuals, families and supporters by making reasonable adjustments or providing support developing strategies to increase happiness and wellbeing in people with autism. This award will be presented to a team or individual who demonstrate evidence of good practice in their services and support to people with autism."

Harriette will be attending an awards ceremony on 15 May 2015 so we wish her the best of luck!
