Professor Amanda Kirby is very unusual and has the unique experience of straddling health, education, and the workplace.

She is a qualified GP and worked in adult psychiatry and stress management but changed her career when her 2nd child was diagnosed with Dyspraxia at 3 years of age. Her experience and frustrations (at times) as a parent finding her way around the health and educational system led to her consequently starting up an interdisciplinary specialist centre for parents, and children in Wales more than 25 years ago in order to be able to provide practical robust support.

She is the chair of the ADHD Foundation and works closely with many other charities working in this area.

Amanda is an emeritus professor at the University of South Wales and an honorary professor at Cardiff University. She has clinical and research experience and founded and ran a transdisciplinary clinical and research team for 20 years relating to neurodiversity. She is a qualified GP and has a Ph.D. relating to emerging adulthood and neurodiversity. She has initiated and run a Masters in SEN programme.
