Pros: Getting to know students, better understanding special needs and the different types of disabilities
Cons: Not a great pay, No benefits
A typical day at work consist of getting children off of the bus, going to class with the child I am assigned to, helping the child stay focused on his or her tasks for the day, assisting with lunch and recess, toileting if that is required in their IEP, and taking them back to the bus at the end of the day. I have learned a lot about IEP's while working as an ABA tech. I love working with the co-workers that I had, we all have the same goal which is to better the children's lives and to give them that chance to learn. The hardest part of the job would be the pay, getting paid $11.50 per hour is not the greatest when trying to pay bills. The most enjoyable part of the job is when the child I work with hits a milestone and me being able to witness it.
