Helen Bibby has worked in education on the Wirral peninsula for 26 years. Having taught in Early Years, Key Stage 1 and 2, she developed a Nurture Group and worked with children affected by a range of social and emotional difficulties. She has worked in many advisory and training roles in education focusing on the Early Years and SEND/Inclusion and has spoken at many conferences and training events in the North West. Helen considers it a privilege to work with children, parents and practitioners and continues to teach and model practice when supporting young children with special educational needs.
In 2011 Helen completed her Doctorate in education and children development. Her follow up research has focused very much on supporting young children with global developmental, autism, language delay and attachment difficulties through multi -sensory and therapeutic play activities to enable infants to revisit early years experiences. This work is summarised in her publication ‘Bridging the Gap and Making Connections’, Many practitioners describe her courses as being outstanding which inspire them to try out new ideas or re-evaluate their own practice.
