With more than five years working intermittently with children with special needs, two of which have been full time in the past two years, I believe I am ideally suited for a position with the Vancouver School Board as a Special Education Assistant.
I begin each day with two core values, love and acceptance, at the forefront of my approach to working with all children. I believe everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, no matter their challenges. There are daily advances and setbacks, and I must adjust my actions and approach accordingly. But all the while the values at the centre of my ethos are unflagging.
I have worked with a wide variety of children with developmental and behavioural challenges. One boy with autism had impulse control concerns and needed frequent help being redirected, talked down, and soothed when confronted with irregularities to his routine or the unpredictable behaviour of others. Another with ADHD often reacted violently when things went awry. Physical intervention, after preventative measures failed, was occasionally required. Yet another child, unable to communicate verbally, and prone to stimming, needed constant intervention to help regulate behaviour normal to him but challenging to others.
Patience, understanding, and a level-headed equanimity have helped me work with these behaviours -- again, normal when observed with humility and understanding, as we all have our differences -- calmly and practically. Helping to integrate these children into a larger childcare setting, while not without its challenges, has been eased by the seemingly innate acceptance children have for difference. Seen through their eyes, special needs really are special and unique.
Thank you for your consideration.
