Working at Cerebral Palsy of Westchester has been truly rewarding. It gives people the opportunity to work with, as well as build relationships with individuals of the CP community. Working with this organization has taught me plenty of things. For starters, I learned that cerebral palsy can come in many different forms. I have had the opportunity to work with both the adult as well as the children of Cerebral Palsy of Westchester. Working here it is very easy to gain a relationship with the consumers you work with everyday. As for the co-workers, majority of the people I have worked with are team players.

I work on several different projects throughout the course of my work day. The hardest part of my job is trying to coordinate the Team. I interact with the Individuals I serve to ascertain their needs/wants and formulate goals to meet their needs to ensure that they participate in their activities of daily living within the scope of their ability. The most enjoyable part of my job is when I am able to talk with the Individuals that are verbal and they ask questions about their Plan of Care.

Teacher Aide (Former Employee) – Rye Brook, NY – April 8, 2013
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.

Teacher's Aide/Day Care Aide (Former Employee) – Westchester, New York – February 10, 2015
Feeling a sense of accomplishment and achievement giving back and sharing what I have learnt; creating an atmosphere of excitement and fun to eager waiting children with great anticipation to learn. Learning never stops, we learn each day knowing and understanding that each child is different and unique likewise their learning ability; education is being an embodiment of the message one wishes to communicate. Rather than imposing ideas on the student a well rounded teacher attempt to create an environment within which the child will be able to make something of him or herself. One may never find perfect co-workers knowing that people are different and are from different communities however one should not focus on the negative but accentuate the positive in fulfilling the wholesome child with love, books, values, confidence, and character. Children are easily distracted knowing that their attention span is limited so desire ongoing activity keeping their little minds involved and not easily distracted; a hard job to keep them focussed. It is most enjoyable when these innocent children are enjoying what is being taught and engrossed attentively to the task of learning.
