Meet Christine
I worked as a para educator. I am trained in ABA. I have had children from 5 - 14 years of age, some very low functioning and some high that were later placed in a regular inclusion class. I have done community outings with these children. One child in particular was non verbal and refused to use his pec symbols. I taught him to use the computer after many months he was typing faster than me. Because of that, he was given a device where he could type what he wanted and the machine spoke for him. He was one of my greatest accomplishments. I also went to the homes of some children to do parent training with the parents to help with what ever they were challenged with at home. I had to leave the school after a divorce to earn more money (I had twins going to college) so I went into sales. The money was great but there is no reward like helping a child communicate, feel self worth, or just be able to be out in the community. I worked with a little girl for months who was a runner. We had to gate the classroom door because she would always run and she was fast.
I am now employed at a middle school as an aide working with children with special needs. I started in August 2013 and I am currently still there.
