I have worked with special needs children and adults for three years. I understand the importance of patience and the bad days that the client or pupil may have, along with the frustration that they may have from day to day.
I believe that with kindness, understanding, and patience on my part that the client or pupil will thrive. It is difficult to be in a educational setting for long period of times for these people. Attention spans are short and they must be motivated and stimulated to keep on task. If there ability to pay attention strays, I will go to another activity so that they do not have to feel that they are being targeted and that they have a chance to be able to move to something else. I also think repetition and follow up is a important of part of the process for learning. I know the fundamentals of basic educational subjects at a grade school level.
I worked for a facility that was structured around education and teaching of basic skills to allow the clients to have the ability to have some independence. It was a "hands-on" learning program. I implemented lesson plans for every stage of capabilities of the clients.
I would like the opportunity to work with the students that are in need of the qualities I believe that I have.
