You can read a sample of articles I have been interviewed for, or featured in, below.
On 31st January 2021, Stuart Cosgrove wrote an excellent article for The National featuring a quote from me titled, “Scotland needs an autism commissioner to show affected kids they matter.”
I featured in a BBC Scotland News report on 27th January 2021 on “Call for commissioner to fight for autism and learning disability rights”
On 26th November 2020, I spoke to Disability News Service about my thoughts on Autistic representation in the Sia movie ‘Music’ released in February 2021.
I was interviewed by Sarah Rose for the Capilano Courier in Vancouver, Canada about the efficacy of online education, supporting children with additional needs and disabilities in schools during the COVID related school closure period of 2020 and the future of education.
You can read Sarah’s feature “Re-education” here.
On 12th August 2020 I was interviewed by the Edinburgh Evening News about the return to school post COVID and my thoughts on how to support the mental health and wellbeing of children returning to school in, ‘Teachers share anonymous feelings about returning to school this week.’
*Although the article states the teachers contributing are anonymous, I gave my permission for my name to be used and have been called Laura in the article. I respect that the Edinburgh Evening News and journalist Katherine Hay has protected the anonymity of the other teachers by protecting their identity on request.
