Miriam Gwynne

Full time carer, mum of twins, believer of the impossible and specialist in having eyes in the back of my head! Both of my twins have autism and one, my son also has a genetic condition called Neurofibromatosis, global delay, learning difficulties and is non verbal. Despite training as teacher nothing has prepared me for the lessons mychildren teach me daily.
