I have seen the passion Tanya has for a strength-based approach to supporting autistic people, and ensuring that policy and practice is based on sound research evidence. She is a highly engaged, respectful and thoughtful part of [the Living Guidelines Group], drawing on her rich clinical and research experience to provide insights into how international evidence can best be applied in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Tanya is an undisputed autism expert. Altogether Autism has had the benefit of her knowledge and expertise for over 12 years and we recommend her without hesitation for psychological assessment and support.

Catherine TrezonaNational Manager, Altogether Autism

I have benefited immensely from Tanya's experience, advice and expertise in both providing expert evidence to the Court and in assisting me, my client defendants, and their families navigate the additional difficulties and complexities faced by those on the autism spectrum who find themselves participating in the criminal justice system. If you have a client, a complainant or a witness in need of assistance I highly recommend involving Tanya in your preparation for trial, or even as early as initial instructions.

Gene TomlinsonGowing and Co Lawyers Ltd

I unhesitatingly recommend Tanya whether it is for forensic or therapeutic purposes. Her reports are insightful and constructive, her research careful and thorough, and she is an assured and respected witness. In her specialist areas of autism and intellectual disability, she is highly regarded nationally and internationally.
