Hi! My name is Sophie and I am Licensed Creative Arts Therapist who specializes in working with kids with special needs. I have experience with children with a wide variety of abilities, including kids on the Autism Spectrum.

Ferdinando V.


Sophie has taken care of two girls of 8 and 10 years old for two weeks, eight hours a day. It has been a splendid experience for the girls, and a very reassuring presence for us. She has organised, every day, a clear and agreed schedule, including fun activities in Manhattan, craft activities at home, study/homework time, music time, calm home play when tired. She has tuned the day to both girls needs and she has managed to make them so happy and interested in everything they did, we were sincerely surprised. She has communicated appropriately with the girls and with us, they have used subways and walked in Manhattan always very safe, she has prepared meals with them when necessary, at home, and she has been very sensible with daily expenses, with great detail summaries. We strongly recommend her!
