Hey, If you are CPR certified along with those other things the next thing I think you need the most is your CNA (Certified Nurses Assistant) that will really open some doors for you. You can start by talking to someone at a nursing home and see if they have any connections to special needs facilities they work with sometimes they may even help with staffing needs from time to time. So that would be a great place to start. Hope that helps!

I trust interest as a prevalent step. although, you additionally must carry a determine in to talk with the instructor and the significant. the instructor is utilising you as an unpaid aide, and depriving you of the preparation that your mum and dad' tax money are determining to purchase. working with those youngsters is sturdy journey for each guy or woman, so there ought to be a rotating time table for pupil guidance and you all ought to get community service credit for it. that's extreme high quality which you're extreme high quality, and she or he'll possibly supply you a good grade, yet you have the impressive to be challenged and excel at your guy or woman point.

If your still in middle school or high school. You can ask your guidance councilor if you can set aside a study hall or 1 class a week to volunteer in your own special needs classrooms in your school.

Hey, I am so glad you asked this question. And I'm really proud of you for wanting to stick up for special ed kids. In the school where I work (I'm a speech therapist), kids are placed in the special ed program because they learn differently. Just like we all look different, sound different, and act different, we also think differently and learn differently. There is nothing wrong with that. In school, we focus on math and reading/writing skills, so kids who are weak in these areas are most often the ones placed in the special ed program. But you know what? Many of them have super-duper skills in other areas, such as music, art, sports, computers, etc. The teachers in the special ed program realize that everyone has strengths and weaknesses -- everyone, not just kids in special ed. But our kids need help with math and reading/writing, so we help them out. Sometimes they also need help with study skills, organization, and learning how to to help themselves by asking questions. Congratulations for graduating out of the special ed program. Maybe someday you will be a special ed teacher and help kids who learn differently! Best wishes to you!
