Norma has had a 12 year career in management training and business development. Since leaving work to raise her two young daughters, she has worked as a volunteer with disabled and special needs children through Riding for the Disabled (RDA). She is currently President of the Henderson RDA group. Norma is also a member of the UK charity What About the Children which works to promote better public and professional understanding of the emotional needs of babies and infants.

Norma has become acutely aware that not all babies are getting the best start in life and that many families are confused by the parenting information that is available. She is keen to spread the Brainwave message as it is backed up by scientific research and case studies. She believes that parenting in the first three years does not have to be complicated or expensive but there are some essentials that our little ones must receive if they are to flourish.
