It all started with my junior high teacher who had volunteered our class to help our fellow classmates who had developmental disabilities to help tutor them with their academics. This lead the power to change my heart and mind and to continue to volunteer on my own in high school with them. The years I spent with them in the classroom I learned to work with kids who were non-verbal and verbal. I learned to encourage independent on their life skills activities such as cooking and cleaning. In my past experience I have done respite and gained experience working with adults with autism. My responsibilities include planning fun activities, watching his/her behavior and stepping to de-escalate the situation. Now, I work full time with middle schoolers, who have autism at an academy. I have learned to deal with certain behaviors, more educated in safety care with kids, and teaching academics. Read more I have had safety training and I’m a certified nursing assistant, CPR certified, and article 9 certified.
