I'm not a mom, but I work with kids who have special needs :)
Hi Everyone, just wanted to introduce myself!
I'm not a mom but I work with kids who have special needs. Right now my clients are from 3-12 yrs. old and have Autism, Aspergers, and Down Syndrome. I've worked with older kids too, up to 18 years old. I'm a Behavior Therapist and I did use ABA at my previous job but at my current one we focus mainly on play-based therapy (or PRT - Pivitol Response Training). So I have experience on both ends and I've been doing this specifically, for about 3 years. My mom was also a job coach for adults with special needs and she's been great with giving me her input when I'm having a hard time with some of the older kids. Anyways, I just wanted to say if you have a question or need advice when it comes to behaviors and different methods and strategies you should use, I'm here to help! :)
