LTD Learning Disability Champion 2015

HSJ Top 50 Inspirational Women in Heathcare 2014

Yvonne Newbold is a writer, speaker and trainer who is also the mother to three children, including Toby who is multiply disabled with profound learning disabilities. She is passionate about doing whatever it takes to make things better for children and adults who have a learning disability or autism, as well as for their families.

Since then, she has written The Special Parent’s Handbook, covering every aspect of Special Needs Parenting and sharing all that she learnt about making life easier. The book is an Amazon #1 Best Seller, and she has since won two awards; HSJ Top 50 Inspirational Women in Healthcare 2014 and Learning Disability Today Parent/Carer Advocate Champion Award 2015.

Yvonne continues to write extensively on issues relating to special needs parenting, learning disability, autism and other related topics. She is also very active on social media, supporting over 6,000 parents on her Facebook Page, also called The Special Parent’s Handbook. On Twitter and Linkedin Yvonne engages with healthcare professionals and others who work with families like her own, gently challenging them to think differently about their own work practices. She also speaks at conferences about how it’s the little things that make all the difference in healthcare – things like kindness, patience and acceptance of everyone.
