"Educating Children with special needs."
I believe that this job requires special kinds of people, people that have a high capacity for caring for others. The job can be very demanding emotionally and physically depending on what area or specialty job you do. Patience is an important asset as well as a high level of tolerance. Always be prepared for the unexpected.
Special Education Paraprofessional in Katy:
You need an open mind. Working with special needs children takes a different approach than with typical developing children. You'll learn tons of new information and meet some wonderful children and people. Just have a lot of patience because it'll take them a bit longer to learn most new concepts but worth it as you see them grow.
