About the Therapist
Ageeth moved from her home country, The Netherlands, to Ireland in 2000.
She is a primary educator, educational consultant and senior Occupational Therapist with over 30 years of experience working with children and adolescents with and without special needs in the Netherlands and Ireland.

She has worked in education, mental health, community advisory services, and in school-age teams for children with complex disabilities. 



While working in schools and paediatric clinical settings, Ageeth developed a special interest in handwriting development, Developmental Coordination Disorders and issues related to inclusive teaching and learning.

The set-up of CAN DO KIDS in 2012 expanded the opportunities for her to follow her interests and aspirations.
Ageeth enjoys being a guest lecturer at Mary Immaculate College of Education and the Liberal Arts (SEN courses), in Limerick. She has provided courses at several Education Centres and provides OT related training and consultation for parents and schools in her area.

More recently, Ageeth worked for the Disability Support Service at NUI Galway, where she also conducted research for her MA in Adult Learning and Development.
Her research topic on self-regulated learning challenges in transitioning students with neurodiversity inspired her to develop a transition-to-higher-education program, targeted at students with Autism/Asperger’s Syndrome. The new service CAN-DO COLLEGE was born.


Her passion for lifelong learning and development is currently driven by her interest in (young) adults with Autism/Asperger’s, academic & life coaching, coaching for Autism and positive psychology.



Ageeth is a member of the Association of Occupational Therapists Ireland (AOTI) and World Federation of Occupational Therapy (WFOT) and is registered with CORU, the national regulator of Health and Social Care Professionals.
