Background Information

Ghida was born and raised in Lebanon. She graduated from the American University of Beirut (AUB) in 2010 with a Bachelors in Elementary Education and a Diploma in Special Education. 

Ghida moved to the UAE in 2010 and started her career working with children with additional needs. She joined an Early Intervention program where she supported children in developing their academic skills, social and communication skills, and in managing challenging behaviors. 

Ghida helped ensure the children successfully transitioned to mainstream schools by giving the teachers tailored tools and recommendations. Ghida worked alongside multidisciplinary therapists which gave her a holistic perspective of a child’s skills and needs.  

In September 2018, Ghida has decided to start working as a licensed freelancer combining her passion with her experience. Her experience ranges from the classroom to the home setting, along with training parents how to best support their children in all environments. She takes strategies from various disciplines to find personally tailored methods that best suited to the children’s needs. 

If your child with additional needs requires support in learning functional life skills, attending longer to various tasks, building the foundation of learning, and managing challenging behaviors that affect their social and academic success, don’t hesitate to get in touch!

Ghida is truly an exceptional individual who worked wonders with our son. She understood his needs and gave practical ideas to help work through difficult times. Ghida is so caring and kind Harry just loves her and would race to see her every morning. I can not recommend Ghida enough if you have a child who dances to the beat of their own drum and needs extra help.
