Specialist Experience and Skills

Broad experience in special education and early childhood education combined with strong academic background enabled me to create a unique child-centred approach, which is loved by children and their families.

I have been working in special education for over eight years. I have supported diverse groups of students with autism, ADHD, global delay, Asperger’s Syndrome, severe and profound needs, epilepsy, speech difficulties, and non-compliant behaviour. My skills in differentiated instruction and approach, assistive technology, and multi-sensory lesson planning allow me to meet the needs... Read More
Broad experience in special education and early childhood education combined with strong academic background enabled me to create a unique child-centred approach, which is loved by children and their families.

I have been working in special education for over eight years. I have supported diverse groups of students with autism, ADHD, global delay, Asperger’s Syndrome, severe and profound needs, epilepsy, speech difficulties, and non-compliant behaviour. My skills in differentiated instruction and approach, assistive technology, and multi-sensory lesson planning allow me to meet the needs of every student. My years of experience have taught me the value of patience and encouragement in the special education. I work closely with each student, providing the individualized support and praise they require. I always integrate child’s interests into learning. One of the many things that make autistic children unique is how they can form highly-focused interests. Whether it’s train, car, knight, castle, unicorns, or a certain period in history, these interests I try to use in gateways to learning. All it takes is some creativity and commitment.

It is crucial for me to have understanding that not every child is the same, what requires different approaches, flexibility and creativity. Children's wellbeing is always at the heart of my practise. This means to ensure they are safe, healthy, achieving, nurtured, active, respected, responsible and included.

One of the most important principles for me is to work closely with child’s parents/carers. Parents and carers are the true experts on their children. To fully support the child in and out of school, it is essential to coordinate and share knowledge with them. This not only builds a relationships, but it also helps the parents and carers to support their child’s education and development. I’ve truly appreciated and learned from every child and every family I have worked with.

I’m currently working as SEN specialist in mainstream primary school. My role aim to support children with SEN working towards their individual targets and personalised plans. The primary focus of my work is to work with individuals and groups delivering specified work under supervision of school SENCO. This includes delivering main curriculum related interventions. This includes:

  • English – Phonics (decoding), Reading, Writing, Comprehension, Speech and Language support (+EAL),

  • Maths,

  • Fine motor skills,

  • PSED.


I also plan, deliver and conduct specialised sessions as Narrative Therapy, Story Telling, Attention Autism, PECS, Intensive Interaction and Play Therapy. In cooperation with Speech Therapists I deliver SALT individual programmes.

 

My Teaching Philosophy

To inspire young minds, expose them to the joys of learning and give them the foundation for lifelong success.

 

Something Sensational About Me

Why I have chosen a SEN in early childhood career pathway? Someone said: ‘If teaching is a vocation, then working in the field of special needs is a calling’. SEN educators are truly passionate, willing to strive the odds stacked against both them and their learners. Remove the acronyms and labels. We use ourselves as bridges over which we invite our students to cross, then, having facilitated our crossing, we joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create bridges of their own.
