Maryhaven Center of Hope
Over the past three years, I have worked in a classroom setting working with Autistic individuals. During this time, I have spent numerous hours working with this individuals teaching them basic life skills, assisting them in their everyday needs, and planning community integration trips for them to enjoy. As the leader of the classroom, I am responsible for coordinating other activities, such as arts and crafts, music therapy, and games during free time. Working with these individuals on a daily basis has made me come to the realization that I enjoy helping people, and would like to incorporate my interest in nutrition with assisting people.
