She has also worked with co-teachers (mainstream teachers) and therapists (Occupational Therapist & Speech Therapist) in preschools to help children with special needs integrate into a classroom setting.


Her Degree in Psychology and past work experience equips her with the knowledge and skills to work with children with various learning and behavioural needs. Shamini believes that working with children is a rewarding career and a privilege. She firmly believes that every child should have the equal opportunity to achieve their highest quality of life and develop their independence. Hence, she wants to support them grow towards independence and build lifelong skills.  Shamini believes that children development and learning ability can be guided and mediated by their social interactions.
