About Susan Lenihan

I’ve been in education for 25 years as teacher, deputy head and headteacher, with 20 years as SENCo, a role I care deeply about. Most recently I gained my Masters in autism studies and SEN from the university of Birmingham.

My greatest accomplishment though is as a proud (all be it exhausted) mum to four. Two of whom have additional educational needs. My youngest has autism and ADHD and a range of associated needs, requiring an EHCP. I have first-hand experience when it comes to having to fight for your child’s rights from placement, provision, tribunal, mediation and beyond and this only serves to drive my passion to want to make a difference.
