Dr Gummer’s Good Play Guide
Amanda has a PhD in neuropsychology, the Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education and over 20 years experience working with children and families. Widely considered as the UK’s go to expert on play, toys and child development, she combines her theoretical knowledge with a refreshingly pragmatic approach to family life, that resonates both with parents and professionals. Amanda is regularly in the media, continues to take an active role in research, and is often involved in government policy around children’s issues – currently as a member of two child-focussed All Party Parliamentary Groups, and speaking at the European Parliament in September 2019.
