My name is Voula Valanidas, and I am passionate about educating and supporting individuals, and empowering and advocating for children with special and/or additional needs and their families.
I specialise in autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and come with decades of experience. I have a Master of Special Education and a Master of Autism. I am also a trained therapist in the Early Start Denver Model (ESDM) and an empirically based early intervention model for children aged 0-5 years of age.
I am the Director of Lift Off Early Intervention and my organisation is a proud sponsor of the Embrace Kids Foundation. I am honoured to be a Board Member for Embrace as this will allow me to support other children and families external to my clinic.
