I have been working with children diagnosed with Special Needs for more than 5 years. I have a son who has been diagnosed with Autism and have created an after school tutoring center that specializes in tutoring children with special needs, especially children on the Autism Spectrum. Within the last 6 years, I have been working in the School District of Philadelphia in Autistic Support, Emotional Support and Learning Support classrooms with children from grades K-8. Each curriculum that is created for your student is a specialized academic curriculum tailored to each child's and parent's specific individual goals included in the IEP or IFSP.
Helping children in the classroom setting to grasp the concepts of basic creative life skills, basic educational skills and functional behavior modification is important to me because I want to see every child succeed in education. I also work one-to-one and in group settings to teach sharing and transitioning into activities without tantrums. My goal is to invite and encourage parents to help develop and follow the daily routines to help the child to become more comfortable with the daily routines in school during the week as well as in the classroom.
If the child is non-verbal the parents and I create a Picture Exchange Communication System board or have helped parents to get Assistive Technology to help with verbal communication and being able to understand daily routines. This is so that the child is able to communicate with parents, teachers and friends. This type of schedule also helps with planning daily routines and the Assistive Technology devices help the child to communicate verbally.
The majority of the lesson plans that I create are compliant to PA State Educational References and there are specific websites in which I am able to provide to children and families to develop and strengthen basic educational skill while making learning fun. Education should be fun and exciting and that is what my goal is when working with Special Needs Children and with the parents.
I look forward to working with you and your child.
I worked for Easter Seals of Southeastern Pennsylvania as a Teacher's Assistant. I worked with child who were diagnosed with mild to severe autism. I worked with children on how to transition from one subject to another without having a tantrum. We used several different techniques to calm the child down.
I also worked for the School District of Philadelphia as a Special Education Classroom Assistant - Severely Disable. This was my formal title. I worked with a classroom of children who were diagnosed with Autism in small groups to help with basic counting, writing, letter identification, number and color identification as well as creating function behavior programs. I also worked with child using a picture schedule so that the children knew what activity was next. I also used several different sensory techniques to familiarize children with different consistencies. I worked with children between the ages of 3 to 12.
