Hi, I’m Debra,
I have a wealth of experience working with people with learning difficulties. I had four years as a community nursery nurse running groups and child and as a parent/carer support in a health centres and homes.
Also 12 years in main stream primary education including supporting children on the Autism spectrum and with challenging behaviour. I helped to provide self esteem through confidence groups, introduced mindfulness to reduce anxiety and supporting through challenging life events i.e. bereavement, bullying family break downs.
I have used art to support pupils to gain positive outcomes and love art and crafts in general in many guises personally including making items to sell.
I have Level 3 Autism qualifications and a Level 4 preparing to teach certificate. I am also senior Playworker at an infant school where I’ve created a drawing group and run art and crafts making table sessions.
I am in the process of beginning a Level 2 Dementia care qualification. I have experience in BSL & Makaton signing too.Visit my page
