Joanna Takla


Joanna is a 40-something qualified solicitor with four children, two of whom are diagnosed on the spectrum. Her son was diagnosed in 2006 and she has been immersing herself in all things ASD since. Her daughter was diagnosed aged three, and it made her think she might be autistic herself.

She is passionate about autistic people with all kinds of abilities making the most of life and their potential, being well-understood, cared for, and having their rights respected. She has excellent knowledge of SEN and social care duties within her professional life.
