I have worked in Brevard County schools, as an instructional assistant with special needs students, for 5 years. I have worked at the elementary and middle school levels. I have worked with students with physical needs, as well as students with autism, Down's syndrome, cerebral palsy and other varying exceptionalities. I have cared for a now 9-year-old with autism and Down's syndrome, at his home, on an as-needed basis for the last 2 years. I have worked as an assistant for a student with hearing loss and learned some sign language along the way. I have been trained to administer certain medications to children, as well as learning the skill of tube feeding. I greatly enjoy working with these wonderful children, and have learned so much about their different needs and ways of learning.
