Susan Ward Davis
Trainer, Autism Oxford UK
Before she retired, Susan worked as a Special Needs Advisory Teacher, having had diverse careers and jobs throughout her life, including Ballroom Dance Teacher, second hand book seller and Truck Driver in the United States. Susan was diagnosed as Autistic very late in life at the age of 62. Since then, her granddaughter too has been diagnosed at the age of fifteen. Susan has a particular interest in the presentation of Autism in females and especially why so many go undiagnosed. Many women, herself included, spend a lifetime hiding their true feelings and masking behaviours while at the same time searching for answers to their social and other difficulties.
