Meet Kerri

I have been in the field of working with children and young adults who have special needs for six years now. I worked at a school in Southport, CT that specialized in neurological disabilities for children and young adults ages 3-21 for six years. I worked as a one to one aide for three different young men who were diagnosed with autism and one of my students had a dual diagnosis of Down Syndrome and autism. I was part of a full team who helped to implement behavior plans and work on IEP goals, academic and therapeutic. The therapies I helped to carryover were speech,... more
I have been in the field of working with children and young adults who have special needs for six years now. I worked at a school in Southport, CT that specialized in neurological disabilities for children and young adults ages 3-21 for six years. I worked as a one to one aide for three different young men who were diagnosed with autism and one of my students had a dual diagnosis of Down Syndrome and autism. I was part of a full team who helped to implement behavior plans and work on IEP goals, academic and therapeutic. The therapies I helped to carryover were speech, occupational therapy, physical therapy, daily living skills, play and social communication, and music. I also helped to facilitate peer interaction with typical peers through a reverse inclusion program run by our school, as well as attended inclusion at a public school with one of my students. In addition I helped at meal time as well as with bathrooming. I have been able to go on many community outings with my students and do activities such as therapeutic horseback riding and even just going to the grocery store or a restaurant to help familiarize these students to the world around them. My work at the school wasn't limited to the three students I worked with directly, I was also able to spend a lot of time with the other students in the building. In addition to this professional experience I have personal experience as well. One of my aunts has special needs and I grew up with her and lived with her for many years. I genuinely love helping people and love seeing the look of pride on someone's face when they can learn something new or accomplish a task that typically developing people may take for granted.
