Qualified Special Needs Assistant
Hello! My name is Laurie and I am a recently qualified SNA, based in Waterford.
I am an early years educator with over 25 years of experience, mostly with EAL (English as an Additional Language) learners.
Recently, I completed the Special Needs Assisting QQI Level 6, Lamh, Autism Awareness and Six Bricks. I am also qualified as a mindfulness practitioner for children and teens.
I am a qualified Montessori teacher and we were living in Italy until last year when we relocated back to Ireland.
I have experience of working with PECS and I am flexible with learning approaches to suit the needs of the child.
I am competent with communication and behaviour difficulties. I am also comfortable in providing the Summer Programme either within the family home or out and about in social settings.
I do not have a driving licence, therefore I am looking for a family within walking distance or public transport within Waterford.
