Taneisha Pascoe-Matthews is currently Head of Learning Support with the main portfolio as a SENCO. She has 16 years’ experience in the Education Sector with her career starting in Jamaica as a Maths and Computer Science teacher and has also achieved a Master’s degree focused in Special Education and Teaching from Middlesex University.
Taneisha is passionate about advocating for better services for families of children diagnosed with Autism and other Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.
She is the author of the book The Biggest Surprise, which was inspired by real-life events with her family and her son Jadon.
In this interview, Taneisha and I discuss the origins of the book and how important it is for children to see themselves represented in books. Taneisha also has great ideas for using the book with parents and in the Early Years setting.
