Qualified Special Needs Assistant
Hello! My name is Finola and I am a fully qualified SNA based in Donegal.
I have qualifications in QQI Level 6 Special Needs Assisting, Train the Trainer and an Undergraduate degree.
I have 1-2 years experience of working with Special Educational Needs, with Autism, ADHD and Down Syndrome, and I have a passion for sport and fitness and the outdoors.
I am competent using Lamh and I am flexible with my approach to learning.
I am eager to participate within the schools after school clubs. I would be eager to get involved in any clubs being run at the school.
I believe health and fitness within young and older adults is hugely important not only for physical health but mental health also. I have also worked in care homes as well, which demonstrates that I am a caring person, flexible in my work and work well as part of a team.
I have a good understanding of Special Needs and I am always interested in learning more about children and any other needs they may have in order to promote their education and development.
I am currently enrolled on a Level 7 Special Needs course with St Angela’s College in Sligo. This will commence part-time in September. This will help develop my skills and knowledge to support those with Special needs.
I am available to provide the Summer Programme, and am comfortable doing so either within the family home or out and about, teaching life and social skills within the community.
