I have been working with children that have special needs for over 10 years. I have been a nanny to several, and worked as a para-educator in special needs classrooms. I have adapted the curriculum to meet their individual needs and provided one-on-one teaching.
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
As mentioned in my qualifications for Aspbergers, ASD is a spectrum. There are highly functioning, and low functioning aspects. I adapt my teaching based on the individual child's needs. My studies in college have mostly been based on ASD and it is something I am passionate about. I have worked with a non-verbal 6 year old and taught him to say "Ash" when referring to me. I also taught him to say his sounds. He just needed understanding and patience.
I have helped several children overcome their fine motor deficits. I can write in cursive and print very well. I have used specific types of lined paper and hand movements to help guide children in their handwriting progression.
