Gemma Sharp

I am a teacher at a special needs school and have a particular interest
in working with pupils who have a severe learning difficulty or profound and multiplelearning difficulty or on the autistic spectrum.

I have worked at a range of special schools and have worked as a teacher
for 8 years and I was a teaching assistant for 4 years. I am passionate about communication and feel it is a basic tool that needs to be in place to enable
a child to continue to progress. I have trained in Makaton, PECS and
intensive interaction.

I have grown up with a sister who has Downs Syndrome and as a family
used Makaton from an early age. I love spending time with my sisters and
going to the theatre to watch musicals together. My other interests are
running and competing on an individual level but also racing cani-cross with
one of my dogs. I love being outside and spend a lot of time walking my
dogs what ever the weather.
