Ed. Term Teacher substitute
From September 2013
You must mean my role as a Spec. Ed. teacher - inclusive education promoting independent living skills to cope with future community living. I have taught some programs in which the children were pulled out due - to very aggressive behaviour and they threatened the safe learning of others.
Three groups - boys that were 14-17 at Trout Lake (IOP program of learning pre-employment skills and transitioning back into an academic school setting), students in Grades 1-4 who had severe fetal alcohol syndrome and were aggressive and non-readers...needed Life Skills and students that were severely challenged cognitively, emotionally, physically and mentally challenged adults ages 16-23 and were preparing to transition into independent community home environments - learning social skills, cooking, laundry, safety, money, eating in a restaurant, using a computer, bike, etc. Some of these students had to be physically restrained at times due to very aggressive and violent behaviour. I trained in Non-violent Crisis Intervention and set up programs for students and schedules of activities for educational assistants to do with these kinds of students like: speech, physical and occupational therapy, toilet training , tube feeding, rehabilitation exercises, etc.
