About Julia Gudinchet, Autism and ADHD Specialist for Children and Young People

Welcome to Sunflower Autism Consultancy! I’m Julia, and I’m deeply passionate about providing accessible support for the neurodivergent community. As an autism and ADHD specialist, I offer support to parents of neurodivergent children and young people.

Following childhood diagnoses of dyspraxia, dyslexia and dyscalculia, I was (finally!) diagnosed with ADHD at age 38. My husband and I have been blessed with two amazing children, one of whom was also diagnosed with ADHD at age 6.

With almost 20 years of experience supporting neurodivergence in families, including those with ADHD, autism, dyslexia, dyspraxia and more, my adaptable and affirming approach is rooted in understanding the world from a neurodivergent perspective.

Bringing a range of perspectives from my professional experience, personal research and professional studies, I completely empathise with the unique challenges you face day-to-day through different environments and tolerance levels.

My goal is to ensure that you and your family feel supported, validated and truly heard, and supply you with the techniques, strategies and outlook to help you flourish.
