about myself | contact particulars

I was born in the United Kingdom in 1972 and have been living and working in Singapore since August 1997.

I trained in London obtaining a Bachelor of Arts Honours Degree (BA Hons) in Music and Dance, a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE - teaching diploma) and a Diploma in Special Educational Needs (DPSE) specialising in the field of Autism. Additionally, in 2005, I passed my Masters in Education Degree (MEd) specialising in Autism, Challenging Behaviour and Learning Difficulties. This was a distance learning course with Birmingham University, U.K.

On completing my PGCE I worked for 3 years at Whitefields Schools and Centre in East London. A multi-cultural, government funded centre comprising of 7 schools within one campus, each specialised in a specific area of special needs. I worked in the school for children between 4 and 19 years with Behaviour and Communication Difficulties. The majority of the students that attended this school had an Autism Spectrum Disorder or severe communicative difficulties. Additionally many of them exhibited severe challenging behaviours. As a result the staff experienced regular training in a variety of areas including SCIP (Strategies for Crisis Intervention and Prevention), TEACCH (Treatment and Education of Autistic and Related Communication Handicapped Children), PECS (Picture Exchange Communication Systems), Facilitated Communication and Behaviour Modification. I have experienced working with children and young adults with a variety of Special Educational Needs from the ages of 3 to 20.

I moved to Singapore in 1997 and taught a special needs class at Dover Court International School for 2 years.

In 1999 I started my own business offering a range of services for children with special needs and for parents and professionals.
