In 2002 he worked with the British Institute of Learning Disabilities (BILD) as it set up the government scheme for accrediting organisations which train in physical interventions and he is now a Principal Tutor for Team-Teach, the largest independent training organisation in the UK. He advises government departments and his work is quoted in a number of official reports and guidance documents.
