This was an extremely easy job to get. I applied and all I had to do was the required paperwork. In one area, I was placed with a kid in a high school which was a very successful situation. However, the success depends on the school.
When I moved and went to other schools, the job descriptions of my assignments did not match the job. I would sign up to be a one-on-one aide, and end up needing to help teach a class of 35 children. Also, when you accept assignments, you know nothing about the child or the school ahead of time, not even the child's age. The child could be anywhere from 5-18 years old.
Case workers at Delta-T will help you find new placements, or fix time card issues, but otherwise there is no interaction with them and you never meet them in person. There is no room for advancement and many school districts have fixed hourly rates. You are also technically self-employed though the company, so you will have to pay self-employment taxes when tax season comes around.
Overall, a varied job. Would only recommend to someone with a lot of social energy to expend. Even a basic background in special needs children or autistic needs will go a Long way.
you track your own hours, easy application process
exhausting, assignment description may not match actual assignment, no room for advancement
