“I am passionate about Enabling all children to reach their potential including those with neurodevelopmental difficulties. I enjoy working with children and their families to achieve their goals within the school setting and work towards achieving independence with the relevant support needed. My passions include teaching and educating professionals within and outside the health sector on the early identification of developmental difficulties to enable children to receive timely diagnosis and management of their condition and have a better prognosis.”
