Lynn Wilson is autistic and dyslexic and she has been involved with lecturing in critical disability studies; disability support and her own disability research in colleges and teaching and research universities since 2001. She made the change to become the Operations Manager for NADP in 2015 and then the Executive Director in 2021.
The role of Executive Director is a strategic role concerned with the growth of NADP as an organisation for the support of its membership and the representation of the members’ interests at meetings with Governmental and non-Governmental bodies.
Lynn currently represents the NADP on the OIA Disability Experts panel, and the All-Party Group on Assistive Technology. She advises several partner organisations on disability. She has extensive experience in training for equality and disability issues and acts as an editor for the Journal of Inclusive Practice in FE and HE.
Lynn unfortunately had to finish her studies for an Educational Doctorate at the UCL Institute of Education. Her research examined breached psychological contracting as one possible cause for the disproportionate number of complaints made by disabled students to the Office of the Independent Adjudicator (OIA). Her research has involved both qualitative and quantitative methodologies with a focus on survey design for her research Masters and phenomenography for her Doctorate.
