Janitha is a Specialist Teacher with DAS International and a Senior Educational Therapist with DAS. The love for children and the love of teaching, motivated Janitha to become an Early Childhood Teacher. With an International Diploma in Early Childhood Course (Montessori Method of Education), she embarked on her career as a Preschool Educator. During the rich and fruitful experience of enlightening little ones, she realised that there were children with differences who needed specially trained teachers to guide them. Based on her degree in Psychology (University of Kerala, India), she was offered a teaching position which enabled her to work with children with special needs (Autistic, ADHD, GDD). Janitha also obtained a Diploma in Educational Studies- Learning Disorders Management and Child Psychology (Linguistic Council) and a Diploma in TESOL (London Teacher Training College). When an opportunity presented itself to work closely with Dyslexic children, she joined DAS as a Learning Support Officer in 2011. Following this, she became a Senior Educational Therapist holding a Post Graduate Certificate ( SpLD ) and a Specialist Tutor. Although her forte is working with young children and lower Primary students, she has many years of experience teaching upper primary and secondary students.
