I am currently 24 studying to be a Speech and Language Therapist. I spent 5 years in United Stated and love to travel. Not to worry though I am here in London know for at least the next 4 years. I have spent the past 5 years of my life caring for children and adults with ASD, ADHD, Global Development Disorder, Down Syndrome and other Special Needs. I have 5 siblings and three adorable nieces who could not be cuter. My youngest brother has Down Syndrome and is my inspiration! At my most recent job in Belfast I worked providing specialized services for children with special needs. I was able to communicate with the children often using Makaton, Pecs, visuals and other forms of Augmentative Communication. Many of the children experienced regular meltdowns and challenging behaviours. I was able to successfully manage these behaviours calmly and safely.Creativity and initiative were welcomed, and I successfully enjoyed arranging and carrying out different sensory, and other activities such as making slime, and other such messy play. During my time in the U.S. I worked at a school for children with Autism and a care home for adults and young people with special needs.
