1 year's experience
I am 46 years of age. I have brought up 5 children, with varying needs, one who had, ADHD, another Sleep Apnoea, and another that had Adems, which at the start was very challenging, but once I got the help in place, and also learned how to help them, to be inclusive in the family and community, made a massive change to their and my life.
Last November the 5(2012), I started studying, with the North Edinburgh Childcare Service, where I have just completed my level 2 in childcare learning and development, where I have been part of an after school setting, where one of our children has Smith Magennis syndrome. I am now her one to one worker, and over the past months have helped the child to grow in her time at the setting,
I am passionate about working with all children, doesn't matter if they have special needs or are able bodied, every child deserves a life of happiness, and excitement, I have the time, to offer this to everyone.
