TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have worked as a paediatric occupational therapist and psychologist for over 12 years. I have worked with children with a variety of challenges, some without diagnosis and others with a wide variety of diagnosis such as specific learning difficulties (dyslexia), developmental coordination disorder (dyspraxia), attention deficit disorder (ADD/ADHD), autistic spectrum disorder, down's syndrome, fragile X, cerebral palsy and many more. The vast majority of my work has been aimed at improving general and/or academic development.
