I have been retired from the New York City Department of Education for two years. I worked with special needs children for 30 years in District 75. Their ages range from 4.9 years through 14 years. The children varied from learning disabled emotional/behavioral challenges, children with autism and children with multiple challenges. It is important to work with related service providers, the teachers, parents and student to get a picture of the child and her/his individual needs. I have a strong background working with small groups aw well as one on one. Tapping into the child's interest, the arts, science and sports, helps to motivate the child to learn and succeed.
