Judith Newman

Judith Newman

Treasurer

My name is Judith Newman.  I am a single parent with 3 children aged 20, 18 and  15.  My son James 18 was diagnosed with ASD aged 4½ and attends an Independent Special School in Godalming as a day pupil.  Getting his Statement of SEN and a place at an appropriate school has not been an easy ride.

Recently I have been working on the SEND Reforms and have gained a lot of knowledge on the proposed SEN Code of Practice.  I look forward to continuing to gather the views of parents to help shape the services available to our families.

Committee Member

Hi, I’m Julie Monahan.  I live in Earley with my husband and 3 children James, 21 and Tamsin & Rhianna, 18 year old twins.

Tamsin has severe physical disabilities and some learning disability.  She also has a severe facial disfigurement which has required multiple operations and suffers from epilepsy.  As a result we have had quite a bit of experience of hospital stays over the years.  Tamsin attends Treloar School in Alton as a weekly boarder. Having such a complex child, it has not always been easy to find appropriate services. I am passionate about helping to improve that situation so that all disabled children and their families can access the services they need.

Martin Jones

Finance Manager

My name is Martin Jones. I live my wife Vicky and our three children, Stephen 25, Katherine 19 and William 14.  Stephen has Aspergers Syndrome and William is on the Autistic Spectrum.  For a number of years we have been dealing with how autism affects our family’s life.  I want to help others and offer support where I can, as I feel that without the support we have received from other families who understand, we would be in a lot worse condition than we are.

My name is Sandra Stubbs and I live in Woodley. I have two boys age 12 and 10 who are on the autistic spectrum.

They both attend mainstream schools, but have their difficulties.

I want to help other families in a similar situation.
