I have excellent supervisor and coworker references. These are available on interview for the sake of the privacy of the families and people. Currently, I am assisting a 15-year-old with SAT verbal preparation. He is ADHD and had severe reading comprehension difficulties and low motivation. I created binders of test preparation, reading comprehension and ADHD management work geared to his special needs for us to work on. Under my direction, he has had a dramatic increase in motivation and dramatic improvement in reading comprehension an in all aspects of the test preparation. He has gone from viewing the verbal test as unnecessary, to becoming motivated to increasing his score as much as possible. His mother is more than willing to provide a reference. At my last professional job, I assisted the children and the teens with their school work and helped them meet their educational goals. I worked with children and teens with mental illness, ADD, ADHD, autism, autism spectrum, Asperger's, cognitive disabilities, developmental delays, Defiant Disorder, anger management problems and learning disabilities in a behavior modification program. I also brought in books and materials and created binders with group project and ideas in them. I researched topics and added them to the book, especially utilizing lesson planet.
