How was SENISE born?

Over the last twenty years I have worked as a classroom teacher, Coordinator of Key Stages three and four, member of the management team of a British center in the Community of Madrid, and a very important teaching experience:  a mother of two bilingual children.

Working, studying and developing my career as a teacher, I have collaborated with many families and professionals in the sector who work tirelessly, and sometimes with few resources, for the good of their children and students with SEN. Although I have realized that all this dedication and work, often does not produce the expected results in the precise time in the school lives of these young people with SEN.

Responding to this need, I have created SENISE, whose objective is to cover this deficiency in the sector, being the only Consultancy whose purpose is to provide a service to private centers, their professionals and families in the management and development of SEN.
