We had a small group of children that we developed a programme to encourage more oral and social interaction, which I ran twice a week;
(Time to Talk) their parents noticed the change at home as they became more confident.

Working on a one to one basis with the nursery children, we teach Key
Stage 1 curriculum, which was adapted to each child's ability. I worked with a number of children with varying degrees of special needs, including,
Autistic children, Down Syndrome, and Aspergers. Some of the children were wheelchair bound, so I helped with their hygiene routine, and at lunch time I would help them to eat their meals. I also worked with year 5 students with various mental and physical disabilities that were
capable of severe mood swings, i.e. - one minute very loving, and the next a violent outburst brought on by anger and frustration.
