Sam Harris leads on the project.
Having worked for many years with children and young people with autism, ADHD, and other conditions which could lead to behaviour others found challenging, Sam developed tried and tested strategies to improve communications. Following on from this he trained as an RDI (Relationship Development Intervention) Consultant, and now provides therapeutic support to families using this approach.
Sam has designed a range of training courses, which are available for young people, parents, professionals and organisations in the Exeter community. This vital combination of educating the individual, family members, and the wider community is needed to improve outcomes for the vulnerable young people Bis-net supports.
Howard Hoskins brings a wealth of experience working with children and adults with conditions which can be linked to challenging behaviour to the project. He has completed training as an RDI therapist and supports families under Sam Harris’s supervision.
Trish Oliver has a range of experience in supporting families with members with ASC, ADHD, PDA, and other “hidden” impairments. Trish provides consultancy support to the project and liaises with the Exeter community.
