I have experience working in a Special Educational Needs (SEN) school, where children with a wide range of learning and physical disabilities attened. Primarily, I have worked to help children on the autism spectrum with acute behavioral problems and severely delayed speech development. Having a degree in Psychology, I have also been able to work as an ABA therapist. It is through this experience, working one-to-one with autistic children as part of an ABA program, that I realised the need for these learning aids tailored to the specific needs of children with autism.
Tailored learning for children with special educational needs - particularly the use of photographic images rather than clip-art, as autistic children seem to respond much better to these images.
