Paediatric Occupational Therapist and Trainer
PG-Cert SI, HCPC OT 74304, MSc, PGCE, BSc
I’m an experienced paediatric occupational therapist, mum of two and qualified teacher. I take a holistic approach to every child I work with, and believe in active therapy involving the child, parents, teachers and teacher assistants all working together.
I currently work in mainstream schools working with small groups, individuals and teachers to promote the best learning environment for all children, especially those with sensory needs and on the autistic spectrum. Having been a teacher, I enjoy problem solving within the classroom and providing children with the tools they need to succeed.
I have recently qualified as a sensory integration therapist with the SI Network, Ulster University. I am really looking forward to putting my new skills into my practice.
I am Makaton trained, and have experience of working with children with a variety of additional needs including children with autism, DCD, ADHD, Down's syndrome, and learning disabilities. Go to my experience for more information.
