Who are you?
I am Stalo Gerolemou, a Special Education Teacher and Speech Therapist.
I have been trained in PECS, ABA, Sensory Integration and licensed with The EarlyBird Programme. I have been working for the last 16 years at The Ministry of Education and have taught in both mainstream and special education schools as a Special Education Teacher. As a co-founder of the Autism Assessment Support Practice (AASP) I have worked with The Center for the last 14 years. Through the further development of The Center, I have delivered many training sessions to parents, schools and professionals, and worked one on one with children.
Why are you interested in the ESIPP Project?
To continue developing my skills as a professional to help the autism community in Cyprus to grow. My objective is to provide the best service possible to each and every individual that I cross paths with. The ESIPP Project helps me to broaden my skills in the field of autism.
What is the project’s most valuable information /tool for you?
The most valuable tools are always communication and the sharing of information. Being able to learn and share information with a broad spectrum of individuals from different cultural backgrounds as well as my own cultural background is an experience and a tool that cannot be replaced.
If you have attended any of the different ESIPP training sessions or events, tell us about your experience.
The seminars have been very well organised with clear, concise and easy to understand information. The environment was both relaxed and professional at the same time, which created a great place to learn and share experiences. The information presented was very practical and easy to put to use immediately in the classroom.
