I have experience caring for individuals with special needs in both a school setting during student teaching placements and at Jill's House (respite care for children with intellectual disabilities). I am passionate about caring for individuals with special needs because I want them to have the same experiences as any other child. To know they are loved and chosen despite their disabilities. Watching as these children learn hard things excites me and seeing their smile and laugh throughout the process only makes it better. In caring for children with special needs my goal is to give them similar learning experiences as their typically developed peers while providing them with different coping mechanisms so they can complete these tasks. Individuals with special needs bring so much joy and ability to this world and I don't want that to go unnoticed by others!
