Villa Anna Teresa Holdings Limited in Malta is currently looking to recruit a Development Specialist to join their team on a part-time basis.
The Development Specialist will work with the client and his/her family in order to support the client’s educational and/or therapeutic development with the aim of enabling them to develop and/or maintain their independence while ensuring that they feel well-adapted within the community they live in. They work with clients who identify with having challenges in their daily living experience, including developmental delay, intellectual and other disabilities, cognitive, neurological or other issues such as Dementia, Parkinson’s Disease and other conditions or disorders.
The Developmental specialist will be highly trained in various approaches, with an ability to adapt evidence-based therapeutic and interventional media which are best suited to the individual client. The academic background of our Development Specialists may vary from Special Education, Occupational Therapy, Psychology or any of the Allied Health professions. During the assessment, we will be able to decide the best-suited background that will serve the needs of the client concerned.
The goals will be set jointly with the client and his/her informal carers, and can be as diverse and unique as the client him/herself!
The Development Specialist will observe and discuss with the client and his/her informal carers in order to create a specialised and individualised care plan that will cater for the goals that they identify together.
