Aeryn has always had an interest in language and communication. Starting her early career in teaching English as a foreign language, she went on to shadow a Speech and Language Therapist and this started her interest in working with autistic people. Her work varies from primary schools as a Learning Support Assistant to Deputy Manager at a National Autistic Society adult day centre. She supported individuals in their daily life and helped them gain work experience and vocational skills. As well as working as a consultant with AS Mentoring, Aeryn worked in a college for autistic young people, facilitating individuals with functional and social aspects of life, supporting students to meet their targets and maintain long life independent living skills. She also works with a company supporting adults with learning disabilities to thrive in community activities and achieve their personal goals.
