I Love Working With Children With Special Needs
I first started working with children with special needs as a teenager. I worked as a volunteer on a respite camp for children with complex learning disabilities and I really enjoyed it!
Later on, I worked as a teaching assistant in a school for children with emotional, social and behaviour difficulties. It was the best job in my life! I am now about to start working as a TA again, this time in a school for children with autism. At the moment, I help out on a summer playscheme for children with complex needs (severe physical and learning disabilities) and autism.
I find it so fulfilling, it's amazing to help those children and build a trusting, working relationship with them.
