Flexible scheduling allowed
Developmental Specialist (Current Employee) – Silver City, NM – December 22, 2016
At home-direct services are performed with clients. I am able to schedule my own appointments which is the best part about my current job. For the last 4 or 5 years my employment has allowed me to set my own schedule. Being a wife and mother, I love this aspect.
I have learned that no two clients are the same. Regardless of their delays, each person is unique and must be treated in uniquely therapeutic ways. What works for one may not work for another. The job has demanded a great deal of research and it has been enjoyable to learn how to help the children overcome developmental, speech, and motor delays.
The hardest part of this job is the cancellations without notice. I drive many miles every day to serve my clients and am often let down when they miss appointments. Another difficult part of my current job is a blatant lack of communication among the co-workers and upper management. Frequently the clients are told one thing by the Family Service Coordinator and something different by the Director. This can cause undue misunderstandings.
