I have been living here in Australia for nearly 9 years, and have just recently become an Aussie citizen. For the last 9 years, I have worked in Early Education as a group teacher and additional needs/support teacher. I have also worked as a disability support worker. I have cared for children for the last 14 yrs so I have plenty experience, knowledge and references if needed! I have assisted many families with infant, toddler and preschool age sleep training and I often do overnight stays as well so parents can get away a weekend break or even midweek! I have also managed many households while parents have gone away for a week.
I have worked with many Occupational therapists and children's psychologists who have come to my workplace to assist with promoting inclusion and following their plans and goals for children who are on the spectrum or in the process of being diagnosed. I have looked after children who have ASD, severe behavioural issues, physical and intellectual disabilities, Downs Syndrome, Fragile x Syndrome, ceberal palsy and children with diabetes, asthma, epilepsy and severe allergies.
I have been working with children for more than 13 years now. I have cared for many newborns and children up to the age of 14.
