I have been a coach of adolescence (ages 14-18) and yound children (ages 3-5) for 6 years now. I have always loved being around children with disabilities. I worked as an ABA therapist for a summer and fall in college with young children with autism spectrum disorder. Now, my job as a Youth Sports Coordinator always has me around children, including coaching the 6 teams I am in charge of. I have babysat on occassion for family members and friends. Also, the school year of 2010-2011, I worked with a 5 year old boy that underwent extreme family trauma, losing both parents. I worked one on one with him because he was experiencing difficulty understanding safety and appropriateness in the classroom. Now, he is functioning on his own in the classroom and has achieved so much in one year. During that time, I was also in a Kindergarten class half of the day. This gave me experience from watching the teacher worked in the classroom.
