My name is Asha, and I am a Behaviour Therapist working with children with Autism in Toronto, Canada. I absolutely love my job, and seeing the children make gains throughout their time in therapy is so rewarding! I am currently working towards my Master’s in Education, and hope to eventually move into a role helping children with their transitions from therapy to full-time school. With that being said, I have limited experience and knowledge from the parents perspective of challenges that may be faced when their child moves into full-time school. I am in the middle of writing a paper for one of my classes about the perspectives from families of children with special needs in the school system. I would love to hear from anyone that has had experience with the school system, about things that went well and things that didn’t. I’d also love to hear about what types of services you found to be helpful, or on the contrary, what services you wish you may have had access to. Any insight into the school experience would be wonderful!
I look forward to hearing about your experiences!
Have a wonderful afternoon!
