Being the baby of the family, I begged my parents for a younger sibling growing up. Unfortunately for me, they never had another child so I’ve always loved to take care of others peoples children. At the age of eighteen, I became a nanny for different families and within the last year, I started working with special needs children. Spending time working with a special needs child has opened my eyes to so many more possibilities for myself in the future. As of right now, I am only majoring in business but I plan to double major and get a degree in early childhood education. After getting those two degrees, I plan to open my own daycare for the average child but I want to also have my day care available for special needs children as well. I plan to get the certifications needed to make this possible. Special needs children are not inferior to normal children, they are smart and independent but they process their thoughts differently than an average person. Things need to be taught to them differently and in a more accurate manner. It’s important that parents of children on the spectrum have the available resources to give their children everything that they need.
