Melanie Bryan OBE, DL, HFIOEE, FRSA

As a super proud Nana and advocate to my awesome autistic 11 year old grandson Carly's insight, lived experience and practical strategies, all delivered with empathy, humour and a 'you can do it' attitude have been invaluable. You might not have Carly on speed text like me, but you do now have this book. A must read for any parent, carer, friend or professional who wants to better understand safeguarding in a wider context to protect an autistic young person.
