I've taught young people and adults with autism & learning disabilities/ difficulties for 17 years. My main subject area was art/ design but I have also taught independent living skills (using money, cooking, social skills etc.). Alongside teaching, I worked as a freelance graphic designer and even though I really enjoyed teaching I am now pursuing a freelance career through selling digital products online. I'm hoping to also develop/ sell age-appropriate teaching resources in the future for adult learners with special educational needs.
To encourage confidence through promoting independence and to praise every accomplishment...no matter how small.
