Amanda Curtis is the founder of the "Special Little People" seminars. Dr. Sophie Banfield was one of the first specialists Amanda had come across that had an incredibly gentle and compassionate manner towards children with an ASD. Some specialists and therapists speak about children with Asperger’s in very clinical terms, even when the child is present! Dr. Sophie puts heart into how she speaks about children on the Spectrum and refers to them as “special little people”. That is how the name of the Seminar series was born.
