Life itself has no meaning. Life is an opportunity to create meaning. Meaning is not to be discovered. It has to be created. So here I choose to work with kids with diverse learning needs, when I made a connection with a student with severe autism while working with different people during college. I have enjoyed working with all the differently abled children. Although it took a while and took many trials, I was finally able to find a way to communicate with them, and this feeling is really amazing. It was and is very rewarding and also a bit challenging as you may have to try several strategies before you find one that works. One of the most important things for me as an educator is to always talk to my students about how all individuals have their strengths and areas that they find challenging. Sometimes they can express and sometimes you need to teach them how to do so. While supporting students with special needs, we need to point out and celebrate their strengths more and more often. They need to believe that everyone learns differently and sometimes it's going to take more effort or more time for them to do†certain things, which is OKAY. What's important is that they learn to advocate for themselves as they get older and state when they don't understand something or ask for help when they need it.
