I am currently still studying at University and so have not had the opportunity in which to gain paid work in the field in which I wish to work. I graduate in the summer with BA Hons in Childhood Studies. Whilst on this course I have been given the opportunity to work in a school on placement on two separate occasions both for a substantial amount of time. I worked in a school specifically designed for students with SEN and disabilities, whilst here I worked with children between the ages of 3 and 10; as well as varying ages the severity of the children's disabilities ranged from MLD to PMLD. Working in this environment I was able to contribute to each child's progress developing the skills and knowledge I have learnt in university. I was able to monitor children's behaviour and was able to learn skills to cope with behaviour of different children depending on their disability; examples including Down Syndrome and Autism. In university I have been able to choose an elective module in which I have obtained a high grade; this module was Special needs and Disability. I carried out my dissertation in a special needs school focusing on how children who are disabled are included with other children; inclusion is something I am extremely passionate about as I have a family member who also has SEN.
