The first family I worked for had fraternal twins. One suffered from severe autism. After that I worked with kids from the ages of 3 to 17. Some had emotional issues or needed extra help with certain things. Other times it was just having fun. I don't have any specific training. But from my experience one can't learn certain things from a book or a class. Sometimes I believe ones own experiences and empathy have just as much or more experience.
