The Dawson Park Primary School teacher’s career was recognised as highly valued at the Learning and Attention Deficit Disorders Society of WA (LADS) awards night.
Ms Byfield has spent most of her career working with children who have learning and attention disabilities.
‘This is my final year of teaching and the award is a most unexpected acknowledgement of my work with children with ADHD,’ she said.
‘Thank you ” my understanding of how LADS works has increased and I am happy to let other families know about your wonderful work.’
The award was presented by City of Nedlands Mayor Max Hipkins, who said he knew first-hand how valuable it was for children to get the right help because one of his own children experienced learning difficulties.
‘With the care and support of the right people, my child finished school and completed a university degree,’ he said.
The awards evening also featured clinical psychologist Zyron Krupenia as a guest speaker.
