Very enjoyable while servicing the community.
Therapeutic Staff Support (TSS) (Former Employee) – Chambersburg, PA – December 7, 2015
While employed as a Therapeutic Staff Support for children on the Asperger's and Autism spectrum, I gained so much fulfillment in helping the individual child as well as, a strong support for their families. Every day was a new experience. I was fortunate enough to have a professional, knowledgeable and caring management team that educated, encouraged and perfected my skills. I can't elaborate enough how supporting those who have physical, mental or learning challenges enriches your personal life. The work was demanding, in that, specialized and accurate documentation was vital. Each day was different for I tailored my work schedule according to the schedule of the families' contract with the company. My job entailed, shadowing the individual child while at school, home and community activities while collecting data that was integral for the mental and physical health professionals to monitor and tailor their intervention strategies. Strong bonds were made between the child, their family members and I.
Challenging yet very rewarding opportunity for working with special needs children.
Demanding and continually changing work schedule.
