Pros: helping a person hands on
Cons: very slow days, having to bascially take high school all over again.
A typical day would be going with a special needs student in High School , helping with their class work, also making sure no medical assistance was needed. I learned that every special needs person learns in their own way and you really have to take your time to make sure that they are retaining the information being taught. The management was out the office, since i worked on sight at a high school i never really seen them. Although i was monitored by the schools special needs director. I worked one on one with the student, but the co-workers in the school were very welcoming and made it easy day to day. The hardest part of my job was trying to make a sophomore in high school with special needs, who thinks their normal, stay on task in class around their peers. The most enjoyable part would be when the student actually enjoyed my company as their aide and excepted help from me.
