I have been working with children with special needs for the past 9 years and love every minute of it! I started volunteering at an organization for children with special needs and instantly was hooked! I was a volunteer there for 7 years! I started working with children with Autism, as an ABA Therapist's assistant for a boy with moderate non-verbal Autism which I adored. Then I started babysitting brothers with Severe Muscular Dystrophy. Those boys were amazing! I also was a volunteer mentor at a program for children with special needs for 3 years. I currently work with triplet boys all with Cerebral Palsy. The boys are 10 years old and the light of my day! Two boys are extremely involved, cannot walk,talk,eat, and need help in everything. The other boy has mild Cerebral Palsy and goes to school in a mainstream class. I work with these boys through Easter Seals three times a week. Also, I work with another family with a special needs son. He is 7 years old and has Agenesis Of The Corpus Callosum, which is a brain condition and also needs help in most daily needs. He is verbal but limited. I also work with another family that has two special needs son's. One is 2 years old and is deaf, and has sensory issues, and the other boy is 5 and has Autism. About once or twice a month I babysit a 9 year old boy who has Aspergers, and is dependent on a set schedule. This summer I worked at a sleep away camp for children with special needs, which was life changing! I also have been volunteering at few camps for children with cancer and other life threatening illnesses, which means the world to me! This school-year I am interning in the Children's Therapy Center, which is a school who children with Cerebral Palsy, ages 18 months to 6 years old twice a week. I am also interning at the triplets school once a week, which is wonderful! I will be observing the Occupational and Speech Therapists to see if that is something I would love to do after college. I love what I do and wouldn't change it for anything!
