Marion founded The Loddon School® in 1988. She has been involved in special education all her teaching life and previously held the headship of three special schools and a directorship of a large facility offering special care and education.
Marion is well known in the field of special education for the contribution she has made to improving the quality of life for a very special group of people who are often marginalised.
Marion also created Liaise Loddon Ltd, a company devoted to the support of adults in the community, providing a continuity of the same philosophy of care and education found at the school.
Marion also developed PROACT-SCIPr-UK® for the UK which is based on a philosophy that places an emphasis on a proactive approach to supporting individuals through times of behavioural crisis in a sensitive and caring manner so that the needs of the whole person are met. Physical interventions are non-aversive and supportive, and are used minimally and only when essential for safety.
Marion has written extensively and lectures both in the UK and internationally.
