I enjoyed the nature of my work as an Intervention specialist.
Working with families and the children associated and diagnosed with Autism made me feel like I was held liable for the positive progress made on a daily basis.
Managing the daily schedule of the clients I worked with and promoting a healthier routine in terms of their nutrition, activity, social needs.
I truly enjoyed the once a month meetings where the employees of our local counties would gather and discuss past situations with clients (who's names remained anonymous), the current progress pending as well as future goals. We were trained as part of the monthly meetings towards accelerated awareness, goal achievements, family communication, client intervention skills.
The hardest part of my job was being able to detach when I left work 100%. I found myself continuing to think and plan for the next day even when I was home. Although this was hard to do, I found it a blessing as it allowed me to re-assess the situation and establish a higher ground in terms of what worked better for the family and their children.
