Diplômes et certifications Bachelor of Education in Steiner Primary Diploma Teaching
I am a qualified primary school teacher working in the field of special education with children and adults with learning difficulties often accompanied by behavioural challenges. As an open-minded teacher I have broadened my educational methodology by studying Montessori and Steiner education. I work from the philosophy that learning originates from a healthy well-functioning body and use a variety of different methods to try to awaken the ability for learning. Through working with the physical body I have seen many children boost their confidence and self-esteem together with great progress in reading, writing, handwriting and maths. I have become a Tomatis Practitioner level 2 as auditory processing plays an integral part in the improvement of learning, behaviour and well-being.
In the initial assessment I gather a broad range of information and look at the challenges presented from different perspectives to establish an individual program through which the client not only can improve academically but also socially and emotionally.
