It's a daily challenge to problem solve with special needs children, hoping to get them to school and home safely and happy. Each child and day is different, that's what keeps you on your toes, keeps your mind sharp. The hardest part is no extra training or getting together with other monitors, would so help with problem solving. Eg. recognizing all types of seizures, behaviour issues in autism, ADD, etc.... If your doing it for recognition, your in it for the wrong reasons, the drivers get it all by the company. You can't be afraid of bodily fluids or the odd pinch, punch, kick or verbal assaults, many times the kids have only one way to communicate fear or anger. But the hugs, smiles, and chatter are worth it all.
