“I look forward to collaborating with the Disability Service in LIT and sharing our commitment to providing a learning environment where students with disabilities can study without disadvantage.”
I am the learning support tutor for the Disability and Learning Support Service in AIT. I completed a BA in Applied Languages (French and German) in 2005. Following this, I went on to complete a Certificate of Competence in Educational Testing with the British Psychological Society and an MA in Professional Studies in Special Educational Needs with St Angela’s College in 2016.
My role as a learning support tutor is to support students with disabilities in their transition to third level by guiding them in developing the academic skills required to access and progress through their studies. Much of my role involves identifying students learning needs, delivering one-to-one learning support based on those needs while monitoring their progress and outcomes. I also train students in the use of assistive technologies to create a more autonomous learning environment and enhance engagement.
I feel privileged to support students in growing to overcome obstacles and reach their full potential. I am excited about the new opportunities that becoming a TU will bring. I look forward to collaborating with the Disability Service in LIT and sharing our commitment to providing a learning environment where students with disabilities can study without disadvantage.
