I am currently specializing in Special Education - and have taken many courses on teaching children who have disabilities. I believe working with special needs children can be a very rewarding opportunity for both the child and caregiver involved, if approached with the right attitude, mindset, and understanding of the task at hand. Being able to work with special needs children gives me the privilege to change lives, while learning about myself too! Working with special needs children in the past, I learned how to appropriately accommodate for others and their needs.
