Special Needs Care — SO53, Eastleigh, Test Valley
SO53, Eastleigh, Test Valley
I am passionate about working with young people and have gained experience of working with young people of a range of different ages from both paid and voluntary roles. I am particularly interested in working with children with additional needs and am keen to build on my experience in this area.
I am a youth worker at a local Youth Centre which provides services to a range of young people. Through this work I help to support young people with additional needs including Autism, Global Delay, ADHD and also PTSD.
I am also a part-time tutor for a 7 year old boy who has severe Autism. This role involves delivering intensive teaching sessions based on ABA (Applied Behaviour Analysis) and VB (Verbal Behaviour) therapy techniques. Activities are based around developing language, speech, receptive and self-help skills.
I also volunteer at a local primary school as a Teaching Assistant. This role involves supporting children with several different special needs such as Autism, Asperger's Syndrome, ADHD and Dyslexia.
