My name is Mara St. Onge, and I have been with the Vancouver School Board for nearly 20 years — working with children who have anxiety, challenging behaviours, developmental delays, stress, spectrum disorder and other difficulties.
This past school year I worked at the school board’s Social Emotional Learning Centre. A place for students with difficulties in social situations and behavioural issues sometimes linked to frustration with friendship building.
I’m also proficient in Zones of Regulation, Mind-Up, Incredible Flexible You, Social Detective and Whole Body Listening Larry.
Complementing this professional background, I also:
- Operate a home share setting for two developmentally-delayed adults.
- Served for six years on the Vancouver Council of Community Living BC.
- Developed an award-winning YMCA program for developmentally delayed youth and adults.
