I am a recent college graduate who is now going back to school for a Masters. For the past 18 months I have worked as an ABA Therapist in Connecticut school districts. I worked mostly with children ranging from the age of 4-15. I assisted them through out their scheduled school day and taught directly as well. I also assisted 2nd Grade Special Education teacher during elementary math, vocabulary, spelling. reading, phonics and writing lessons.
I am now able to develop an array of skills for children with autism using the foundation and
principles of applied behavioral analysis (i.e. self-care, play, socialization). I am able to collect, graph and assess data concerning behavior and skills of children with autism. I have learned that I have an inclination to working with children based upon my patience and compassion. I am highly flexible and organized which is important when working in tutoring time into a busy schedule.
Along with my set of skills and experience, I will bring along a strong desire to help others, teach and promote independence. I’m looking forward to arranging a meeting with your school to discuss the matter in further detail. Thank you for your time and for considering my application.
