About Me

Structure, respect and communication are my key essentials to support pupils with or without special needs and attend to their specific needs.

I am 29 years old, originally from Belgium (fluent English/French speaker) who recently qualified as a Special Need Teacher (SEN) (ASD)- I have been working with children for the last 9 years and have been able to build strong experiences across different settings and age range- Adult with down syndromes, youth and young children with autism and pupils with multiple specific needs.
I'm currently working at the Garden school as A Special Need Teacher, supporting pupils with Autism. My role is to provide a safe, low arousal and predictable environment to support the pupils learning whilst reducing the possible anxiety they may experience throughout the day. A crucial aspect of my work is to ensure that communication is promoted at all times in order to support the pupils expressive and spoken language through the use of symbols, AAC device, PECS, MAKATON and visuals tailored the pupil's needs.
To enable learning, increase independence and promote the pupils' interactions and communication I designed fun, engaging, meaningful lessons and activities by working in partnership with a team of 5 Teaching assistant and different professionals such as speech and language therapist, occupational therapist and psychologist.
The approach used and followed within the school is SCERTS- Social, Communication, Emotional Regulation and Transactional Support which guide my practice in focusing on each pupils as unique individuals.

Managing and prevent challenging behaviour is also a key aspect of my role as teacher- Create resources and think of different strategies to support the pupils in learning how to self regulating and finding coping strategies when experiencing stressful situations.

I would love to support your children to go through their daily task and activities as well providing the appropriate tools and strategies to help them feel emotionally regulated and ready to learn or simply be happy ! :)
