Special Education Teacher

Suresh graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Applied Science (Psychology) from Deakin University, Australia.  Over the past 15 years, he has worked with children with a range of needs, such as Learning Difficulties, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Global Developmental Delay (GDD), Down’s Syndrome, among others developmental conditions. His career started with working with children in hospital setting. He realized his interest for teaching so he transitioned to the role of early intervention teacher in private centres.

Suresh strongly believes that every child is different and as such will have different needs and strengths. Therefore, maintaining focus on each child’s unique needs and helping to equip them with the necessary skills is key for their lifelong learning. He believes that the optimal way to achieve this is through personalized plans for children while working closely to support their parents and families. He also strongly believes in collaborative practice with a multidisciplinary team to support his student’s needs.
