I have worked in the additional needs field for over eight years across a range of settings including special needs colleges, outreach services and in mainstream schools as a one-to-one support.
I am very knowledgeable about autism spectrum condition and I am very well-versed and innovative in supporting people with autism to gain independence, develop self-calming strategies and encouraging communication via Makaton, verbally, using PECS and gesture. I am very comfortable and familiar with legislation and procedure regarding medication administration and even in some nursing/therapy procedures such as ostomy bags and deep pressure massage.
Personality-wise I like to have fun with the person I support, to joke and engage in banter when appropriate, I am very calm especially in emergencies or when dealing with challenging behaviour/s. I am a fast learner and I am very diligent, always willing to advocate for and defend the dignity of the person I support.
