Ms UNTA TAIWO profile picture
  • Student
  • IOE - Psychology & Human Development
  • UCL Institute of Education

I am a full-time first year MPhil/PhD student at the Psychology and Human Development Department, IOE. Recently I completed an MSc in Child Development at UCL, where my dissertation explored the experience of an autism diagnosis from the perspective of young people and their parents. I am also a member of the Child Development and Learning Difficulties Lab at IOE, UCL.


I have 18 years’ experience working with children and young people. I have worked as a primary school teacher in mainstream and special needs settings and also as a special education needs and/or disabilities co-ordinator (SENDCO), autism advisory teacher and senior leader for inclusion within mainstream schools. 


My interests in the value and impact of intervention programmes have led me to explore work with children and young people across multiple settings, including schools and charities in the UK and abroad. I am driven by the way in which thoughtful education can be the vehicle that enables young people to reach their full potential, and this has underpinned my continued career path.

Research Summary

My research project will look at improving mathematical outcomes for children with William syndrome and Down syndrome (funded by Bloomsbury Studentship).
