Hi guys, i finished my special needs assistant training back in March. Got the results. I got a distinction
good for you!
Congratulations on you distinction.
Hi Emmi 23,
Im doing that course now. I'll be finished later this year
It might sound like a silly quest but what exactly does a special needs assistant do.
Could you give some examples?
Who employs you and who decides how much time a child needs?
They are employed by the department to assist children in the classroom with special needs.
Hi there, it's not a stupid question at all. SNA's are employed by the Department of Education. Once a child is assesed, it is then decided if they require an SNA in the classroom. An SNA's duties all depend on the needs the child has and work from there. The most important thing overall is to make sure that a child with special needs is made feel equal to rest of their peers and is not excluded in the classroom or in day to day activities.
Good luck with your career - i can imagine that you will be a wonderful addition in the lives of children.
Any news on the SNA job?
