Ann Graves

Ann is a published children’s picture book author and children’s activity blogger. With nearly 20
years in the classroom as a teacher in both mainstream and SEND settings, Ann has plenty of
experience to draw from when creating activities and advising on supporting children in school
and at home. In addition to her classroom-based work, she has been a certified TEACCH
Advanced Consultant and Autism Advisory Teacher. She is now an independent Autism
consultant and has worked with fellow Autism consultants delivering best practice training to
education and health professionals across Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.

After leaving classroom teaching, Ann decided to make a childhood dream come true and
became a published author. So far she has created two colourful under-the-sea adventures with
characters she developed with her son. Ann chose picture books as she believes in their
importance for developing a child’s joy of reading.

Drawing on her years of teaching experience and being a mother of two, Ann wishes to enable
others to support their children in the vital foundation years of learning and education through
play and fun.
