Our Specialists

JACQUI PENNY

Parent Consultant

 

I am first and foremost mum to a son with Aspergers/ADD. With a background in science and business, I became very interested in finding out why he had ASD (autistic spectrum disorder) and in researching the therapies that might be of help and who offered them. My son made such great progress that I vowed I would set up a clinic to help other children and families affected by ASD. Hence the arrival of Kids In Sync Children’s Therapy Centre.
