Hello,

My name is Daphne and I am currently a tutor/shadow aide for children with special needs and also a substitute special education behavior technician with the San Diego Unified School District. I began working a few years ago as a tutor to children with autism. It was while I was in this position that I learned that each child processes information differently. Along with learning about and implementing ABA, PRT, and other techniques, my experience and understanding in working with children has taught me that motivation and encouragement is the key that unlocks their ability to learn. I have learned to empty my mind of any preconceived ideas and to first learn from them and then find creative and fun ways to teach.

I hope to hear from you soon.
