Aimée Mann Mentoring

Rugby Autism Network has partnered up with Aimée Mann Mentoring to offer Workshops and online learning course/webinars at a reduced price.

Aimée Mann Mentoring was set up by Aimée, who has three children including her oldest son, Freddie who lives with additional needs and disabilities. His diagnosis is super rare, TUBA 1A. In the early days, Aimée struggled to find the support and skills she needed to help her Advocate successfully for Freddie and to ensure she took care of her own physical and mental health, as the parent of a child with needs. Having come out strong the other side, she now helps amazing, hard working and dedicated Parents, of children with SEND, become empowered to be their child’s biggest and most successful advocate.

RAN Charity will rebate on selected Aimee Mann services by 25%.

You can visit the Testimonials page on Aimée’s website to read what other parent/carers thought about the live workshops after attending. 

“I simply cannot praise Aimee’s workshops high enough! Invaluable to anyone currently wading through the SEN jungle!
I was at such a low point when I first met Aimee, and felt totally exhausted, but with the help of some new found velvet techniques and a better understanding of emotional resillience, my mindset shifted, and I have single-handedly managed to not only achieve a higher level of support for my son, but also managed to navigate a pretty corrupt system, securing numerous professional assessments and reports along the way, in a very short space of time! A further velvet victory happened today when the LA overturned their decision to refuse an ehcp assessment during mediation.
I simply could not have achieved what I have, without the empowerment gained during these workshops.
Thank you so much Aimee xxx”

Online Learning Course Review

“I completed Aimee’s online course (Get Your Voice Heard), and would thoroughly recommend it to those Mums and Dads that want to participate from the comfort of their own home at a time that fits around their child. As a working mum to a son with severe needs, getting time off work to attend courses is sometimes hard. However, when Aimee mentioned her online course, it was perfect for me. It’s broken down into chapters, so I completed the course over about 4 evenings, at a time that suited me. The content was clear and concise, and there was an option to chat to others who were also doing the course, and suggested reading material should I want to read into the topics further. My other half did the course at the same time as well, that meant we both learnt and could discuss the topics raised, rather than one of us doing a course and having to explain the content to the other. It enables both parents to be pro-active. An excellent course and Aimee really gave us some extra tools to head into meetings with professionals with. Thank you, Aimee” Gemma
