Part Time Afternoon Special Needs Provider
I worked as a caregiver/behaviorist to 3 children on the Autism Spectrum, ages 3 and 9, for a year. Each child had unique accommodation and it all depend on the parents request. Definitely, it is not easy but with patience, flexibility, and working closely with the parents, I was able to assist the family and meet their needs and their child's need. I use to tutor and mentor an elementary boy with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder for a year, going to the child's school and working on math assignments and consult with the child with any social or academic struggles. I work in a preschool as an Associate Teacher in San Francisco and I am currently shadowing a child during through transitions, and work closely with the head teacher to assist other children who may need extra attention. I am passionate working with children with disabilities because I personally feel and see them as individuals who are capable of being independent and competent individuals and I want to provide them the opportunity to reach independence and competence but most importantly have them feel respected.
