Local Offer

Local Offer description

I have worked with special needs children through school for many years. I have worked in a special needs school looking after children with complex needs, such as Autism.

As part of my job in school I also worked with children who may require addtional support within the classroom. I am willing to support any child in my home.

On a Friday evening I run a Brownie Guide unit. Many girls come through with additional needs and I am able to cater for this.
