Special Needs Experience
I have experience working with children with behavioural, emotional and intellectual disorders, including those with Autism, anxiety/depression, Downs syndrome and others. My background in psychology has given me a strong understanding of the many complex needs of a great range of children, and ways in which to meet those needs in a safe and caring environment.
I have been babysitting for over 5 years (0-13 years). I have spent 1 year working in a boarding school (age 3-13 years), two years as a swimming teacher (age 2-16 years) and about 18 months as a Behavioural Therapist (age 3-5 years).
I am currently completing a Masters or Teaching (Primary) and have a deep understanding of the NSW syllabus across all years from Kindergarten to Year
6, as well as strong understanding of effective teaching and learning strategies. I have a Bachelor of Psychology and can work with children who have behavioural, learning or other special needs.
School Years: Kindergarten, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 6

"Suzannah has been a great help to our family. She is reliable and very communicative. She has no problems continuing the family routines in my absence and we are lucky to have her help is out. "
From Isabel - Bronte
"Suzannah was punctual, quickly built rapport with my three children and handled all the curveballs that one could possibly encounter on one's first assignment with the family - we arrived late back home having been held up at a meeting, my next meeting started later than expected meaning that Suzannah needed to stay on longer than we first thought - and did so happily. One of three children refused to eat but was desperate to play with Suzannah. All taken in her stride with a smile I would be happy to recommend Suzannah to any family. Julianne. "
