A typical day at work would include taking a child off the bus, bring them to the classroom, and then to the changing room. After the first change, I'll feed my 1:1 breakfast and then prepare for morning circle, which takes about 30-45 minutes. Depending what day it was we would either have independent goal to complete with the children or gym, art, music, or pet therapy. Once those task were complete then I would prepare lunch for all the children in my classroom whom ate by mouth. After lunch it would be time for the afternoon change and then mat time. By this time it's around 12:30pm and I would take me 30 minute lunch. After lunch I would go back to the class and begin working. After all the staff have return from lunch we set the children up for peer interaction, where thy would play a game together, enjoy tactile stimulation, or a story. Finally we take the children for their last change of the day and get them prepared to go home.
