"April’s sessions are well thought out with a clear vision and expected outcome for each session. She provides the right balance between consultancy and inviting participants to identify their own solutions.


April meets her workshop participants in a calm and friendly manner and demonstrates a great ability to listen, be flexible and open-minded, thus embracing the input, ideas and different needs of the group."

Your inclusion guide

Hi, I'm April!

At the age of 8, I had a teacher who didn't understand my gifts and would send me to work with students who had intensive needs. Though it was meant as punishment, it sparked my passion for supporting individuals with diverse abilities.

Over the course of 20 years teaching, I developed strategies for creating a more inclusive and equitable learning environment for all students.

In 2018, I dedicated myself fully to advancing inclusion in schools and advocating for neurodiverse students.

Today, I partner with top schools and organizations to enhance their inclusion practices, and I am a sought-after speaker at prominent disability inclusion conferences around the world.
