I also bring them places, cook for them, and play with them. In addition to babysitting those boys, I have been interning with a Special Education classroom, and I am going to be going to Bridgewater State University next year for my Master's in Special Education. From my internship, I have learned how to help, entertain, look after, play with, and teach children with special needs.
