Hello

Hi! Welcome to The Sunshine Room - your go-to educational blog for all things relating to Special Educational Needs. My name's Liv and I have had the pleasure of working with children and young people for the last 12 years. As you can imagine, it has been a rollercoaster of a ride, but one of the most rewarding parts to my life so far. I want to share with you my experiences, knowledge and little wisdoms when it comes to supporting children with Special Educational Needs. 

I believe that every child should have the most magical educational experience, regardless of ability and by understanding how we can individualise education, we can ensure every child thrives at school.

My Story

Welcome to The Sunshine Room! I'm Liv, an education enthusiast with over a decade of experience in the field, primarily dedicating my career to Special Education Needs (SEN). Having worn various hats, from a Class Teacher to a Teaching Assistant and SEN Support Worker, my journey has been a rich tapestry woven with the threads of compassion, determination, and a profound belief in the potential of every child.

A Passion for Inclusive Education

My mission stems from a deep-seated desire to make a lasting impact on children's lives, helping them unlock their true potential. Over the years, I've had the privilege of assisting a diverse range of learners. One of the most rewarding moments was guiding a child to discover the right communication method for him, essentially 'unlocking' their voice and helping him speak for the first time in 15 years. Witnessing children with SEN thrive both in and out of school, building friendships and honing social skills, fuelled my commitment to fostering inclusivity.

The Birth of The Sunshine Room

"The Sunshine Room" is not just a blog; it's a testament to my passion for inclusive education. My motivation to create this space arose from a genuine need to bridge the gap in understanding and support for children with SEN. I've witnessed firsthand the transformative power of simple adjustments in teaching methods, breaking down barriers to make education truly accessible for all.

Debunking Myths and Empowering Educators

This blog isn't just about my journey; it's about empowering you. My focus is on Special Needs and Inclusion, shedding light on practical strategies that can be seamlessly integrated into teaching. I aspire to debunk myths surrounding SEN, providing you with insights, practical tips, and resources to create a more inclusive learning environment. Whether you're an educator looking to enhance your teaching toolkit, a parent navigating the educational landscape, or anyone passionate about making a positive impact, The Sunshine Room is here to guide you.

Join me in unravelling the possibilities of inclusive education, where every child's unique brilliance is not just acknowledged but celebrated. Let's journey together towards a brighter, more inclusive future.
