Team Desty’s mission is to support all children to discover their strengths and overcome their challenges and to live happy and full lives while reaching their true potential.
Education DESTY® Ltd (Developing Exceptional Strengths and Talents in You) is a software development and online training company founded by Educational Psychologist, Stephanie O’Malley, CEO. For the past 15 years Stephanie has worked in educational and child pyschology services in Ireland, supporting families, children and educators across a variety of areas including the support of children with additional challenges.
Through her research, Stephanie has discovered that children learn and ultimately live better and happier lives when they develop key social emotional competencies. Over the past number of years Stephanie has focused on developing her vision of the Education DESTY® Social & Emotional Learning (SEL) web-based software. Together with Team Desty she has created a colourful, personalised learning platform where the child can create, tell and share his/her story of feelings, thoughts and relationships. This is a psychologically safe world for the child with the presence of DESTY®, their trusty in-world mentor who is there to help if needed; a place where they can explore who they want to be, providing a positive road map for their future selves.
