When you have a “normal” child, who meets developmental benchmarks as expected, you are happy. When he or she gets good grades (and you share that they made the honor roll on your Facebook page) you’re happy. When your child does as he/she is told, you are happy. It is a “normal” joy, because, of course, it is his/her duty.
BUT- when you have a kid with some limitations, with each learning and small success, you pulsate and vibrate as if you had won a championship, because they have. I would like to ask you a great favor on an important subject:
It is Special Education week, not only for children with Down syndrome, Autism, Dyslexia, ADHD or ADD, but also for kids/teens with special needs; those who struggle every day to succeed, who battle disorders or learning issues over which they may have no control, and those who help them progress to various achievements and independence.
It would be great to teach our children to be kind and to accept all their classmates. Kids with special needs want what every kid wants: to be accepted! And they suffer greatly when they are rejected or mocked.
Your future employee is an outgoing and caring individual who desires a position working with others. This person has many years’ experience in both the caregiving and hospitality industries and is interested in working as a hostess/greeter in a restaurant atmosphere; or would be just as comfortable providing sitter or respite care to persons in need of such services. This person is interested in part time work and is available to begin working immediately and also has their own transportation and a valid FL Driver’s license.
Your future employee is a single dad with a stable work history. He is friendly, reliable and was once a CNA. He would like to work as a host, as a caretaker or somewhere that he has contact with the public. He is organized, conscientious and meticulous and loves to serve others. He would make a great addition to any team and is eligible for OJT, a program that provides an incentive for employers who hire our clients.
Your future employee is a young man with a degree from GCSC currently attending Florida State University. He is very interested in working in broadcasting and, in fact, did an internship at a local TV station while in high school. The first thing he does when he gets up in the morning is check the news. He loves to read, watches the news diligently, the Weather Channel and the History Channel. He is reliable and responsible as evidenced by the fact that he has worked at his current job for the past eight years. He is punctual, kind, responsible, conscientious and hardworking and would make a great addition to any team. He has reliable transportation and a clean driving record.St.Andrew Bay Center Employment Success
