About Stella Waterhouse

My interest in autism dates back to the late 1960s when I worked in a Camphill School for children with learning disabilities. After completing a course in Curative Education at St. Christopher’s School in Bristol in the early 1970s I went on to work with children with a variety of special needs moving from there to spend 10 years working with emotionally disturbed adolescent boys.I then returned to work with adults with ASD in a residential home - first as a Senior Care Officer and then as Deputy Principal.

Over the past forty years my work has encompassed two very different approaches to autism, giving me a basic grounding in the work of Rudolf Steiner and also a more psychoanalytical approach.

Since the late 1980s my research has also led me to investigate some alternative theories - eg sensory differences - which I believe are integral to ASD. That, combined with a healthy degree of skepticism and the fact I have no funding from external sources (except my husband), ensure that I am not constrained by preconceptions and/or allegiance to any particular theories that others might be.
