Youth Leadership Program
Sam has been teaching groups of children at several local schools how to speak in public, build their confidence and find their voice. In particular the students chosen for the programs are the quieter ones, or the children who are regarded as disruptive or difficult, as they need to find their voice and understand the rules of communication more than anyone.
Sam continues to undertake her own personal development. She is writing a book on how to help those without Autism live and work with those who have, and vice versa.
