The love and gratitude that will be reciprocated as a result of you working with adults with special needs (even though there will be challenges along the way) will live long in your memory and will have a positive influence and might even transform your outlook on life and the way you conduct your life in the future.
Working with people who have special needs will teach you about many important aspects about life in general. You’ll acquire much more knowledge about the difficulties certain sections of your community face in their everyday lives and gain a better understanding of how you can help to improve the lives of those less fortunate than yourself.
I've become good friends with some of my coworkers because they're genuine people. You kind of have to be, in this line of work. My coworkers are so fun to be around, and to top it off, in part because of what we do, they are some of the most caring people I've met. What better friends can you have?
This sense of compassion and drive to serve a population with autism and other developmental disabilities inspired a career I love. I’m grateful to work with such a great crew, and the meaningful work I do inspires me every day.
