Aspergers Heroes

Aspergers Heroes. David Derbyshire

Asperger’s Heroes is a personal development service aimed at adults with Asperger’s Syndrome. Its goal is to empower people to make positive changes both in their own lives and in their workplace or community. I tackle such issues as managing stress, developing social skills and finding fulfilment, by offering one-to-one consultations and group workshops.

 

David received a Distinction in my Diploma in Life Coaching and he is also a co-founder of job club where he volunteered as a job coach for 5 years. 

He taught Psychology in Further Education in interesting and engaging ways for many years, gaining mainly grade 2 “good” observations. At Birmingham Metropolitan College he worked for 14 years teaching AQA A-level Psychology (AS and A2) to sixth-formers and previously to evening classes and Psychological Perspectives on Ascentis Access to HE Programme.
