This was aprogram that really cared about the social-emotional well being of children
Behavioral Health Professional (Former Employee) – West Palm Beach, FL – February 4, 2013
A typical day consisted of observing children's behaviors in the classroom, and then meeting with the teachers to discuss concerns, referrals to groups, and students' progress. I learned how to really pay close attention to what children say & do in order to get attention. My Supervisor was very supportive and always gave great suggestions when needed. My coworkers were team players and really cooperative when tasks were delegated. the hardest part of my job was when I first started, the position didn't have or require the amount of structure that i was used to, but once I really understood what I had to do and how to do it, it was fine. The most enjoyable part of my job was working with the students & school staff, as well as having the opportunity to show other strengths & talents during team tasks/work groups.
