Francesca works to help families and schools in Italy understand PDA better and put strategies in place.

In the UK, she helps entrepreneurs with special needs, autism and PDA, structure their business so that their needs are taken into account and they set up for success.

Through Francesca’s workshops for high school special needs students, “Shaping your future” , she helps teenagers identify possible jobs/business ventures they could be successful at, taking into consideration their additional needs, their absorbent interests and their skills.

How My Journey As A PDA Mum Has Shaped The Way I Work With Special Needs Entrepreneurs

Francesca discusses the ways that realising and learning about PDA and autism in general have shaped the way she runs her business and helped her create a company that helps people on the spectrum find a fitting job/starting a business built around their needs.
