About Dawn


Bio

I've taught Special Education in all grades. I have the most experience with moderate to more profound special needs such as autism and Down syndrome. I have taught in a primary, elementary and high school all within the moderate to more profound special needs areas. I usually work on communication and social skills as well as daily living and job skills. Right now I am teaching high school and my main goal is to get my students ready to enter the work force.

I've taught Special Education in all grades. I have the most experience with moderate to more profound special needs such as autism and Down syndrome. I have taught in a primary, elementary and high school all within the moderate to more profound special needs areas. I usually work on communication and social skills as well as daily living and job skills. Right now I am teaching high school and my main goal is to get my students ready to enter the work force. If they go to the Burton Center or get a job within the community, I want to do all I can to help with the transition from school to the work force.

I have also worked with the milder disabilities such as ADD/ADHD and dyslexia. As a matter a fact, I have a daughter who has ADD, and I know first hand how hard it is to teach a child who has a hard time sitting still, focusing and paying attention for longer periods of time. What I love about tutoring and teaching is watching a student be able to master something that he/she has struggled with in the past.

I try to focus on one student at a time and skill at a time. The more hands-on activities I can do, the better. I try to find activities that they find fun and engaging, but that are also educational. I have found that many students love educational computer games, and I love to use these types of activities in my teaching as a tool to help with learning, as well as a reward for doing activities that the students may not like to do as much.

Feel free to contact me if I can be of any help to you or your child. I am looking forward to hearing from you!

Subjects

Special Needs

ADHD,

ADHD

I have taught special education for the past twelve years. I have a daughter with ADD/ADHD. Some strategies that I use for ADD/ADHD are shortening written assignments, using items that are more hands-on and using a visual chart for each student's schedule. (A visual schedule will help the student see what he/she has done, along with what needs to be completed.) I also use a reward system to keep the student motivated.
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD),

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I have taught many students with autism spectrum disorders. I focus on communication skills and social skills. I also focus on daily living and job (transitional) skills. I work one-on-one and focus in on the needs of that one student. I have taught special education for the past twelve years.
