Su Seymour Gosports Autism Ambassador
I would like to introduce to you Su Seymour. Su is an Accredited Autism Ambassador.
Fighting against scepticism that Su couldn’t do the service well, her own GP refused her offer, she feels it was because she has autism but that’s why she is an expert.
Su would love to put her training into practice and is willing to train any group that may come across anyone with autism. She can answer any question about autism and give help in situations such as going into hospital or helping to give solutions to problems with social occasions.
Su is on the Transforming Care Partnership Board and fighting to get the myths that autism is either mental health or a learning disability. As Su says ’Most of the time I have no voice, no choice but I fight for others’.
Already the Ambassador for Queen Alexandra and Southampton General Hospital, where she has trained many of the staff. Fully trained to be an Autism Ambassador (AH) having completed all modules at level 2 and Advanced Su is qualified to train others to be autism ambassadors too. Su is so proficient she can help AH trainers update their trainers. She is a volunteer at Autism Hampshire (AH) and helps at St Vincent College as an Ambassador and where they run a little group for students to come and ask questions of her.
One of the things Su loves doing is singing so she and a friend, also with autism, have a ‘Singing Spectrum group’ where they raise money for Autism Hampshire (AH), they also sing at Reilly Enterprise events for their charity.
To get the full Ambassador accreditation Su needs to be helping other groups so would love to hear from you.
