Lola Kneller

I am Lola Kneller, an advocate and educator specializing in supporting children and
families with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), with a particular focus
on autism. After my own late diagnosis of autism at 34 and recognizing the educational
gaps for my two autistic children, I redirected my career towards enhancing support for
community groups and CICs, filling a vital need for outdoor programs. My approach
prioritizes child-led learning and autonomy, underpinning my current retraining as a
Forest School leader. This path reflects my commitment to leveraging outdoor education
to bolster the wellbeing of disabled children. As a home educator, I also provide
guidance to families on navigating SEND-related issues, advocating for inclusive,
equitable, and alternative educational frameworks.
