Hello, my name is Melissa. I'm a dedicated professional with over nine years of experience in the field of special care counselling. I specifically focus on individuals with intellectual disabilities and/or autism spectrum disorder. Currently, I'm rendering my services at Miriam Home and Services Center, where I work with children, teenagers, and adults, whose disabilities range from mild to severe.
I have 11 years of customer service experience in the retail and service sector. This experience has strengthened my ability to understand, establish, and maintain excellent relationships with clients, addressing their needs efficiently.
I hold a bachelor's degree and have special qualifications for dealing with children, teenagers, and seniors with special needs. I'm available to work throughout weekdays and on Sundays, from morning to evening, and can begin rendering services immediately. I'm able to conduct sessions at your home or online, depending on your convenience. I strive to bring an adaptable and unique approach to each individual I work with.
As a mother of an eight-year-old girl, I understand and appreciate the different learning styles of children, and I'm able to adapt my teaching methods to best fit their needs. In addition to being a caring professional, I'm also a devotee of aerobics and have interests in cooking, reading, and music. I always look forward to social events.
I own a vehicle, don’t smoke, and can provide references upon request. I also speak both English and French fluently.
I look forward to helping your child, teenager, or senior succeed, not only by teaching them but also aiding in their rehabilitation and adaptation process.
(Note: I have a cleared police check and am a Canadian Citizen.)
