Exceptional Children Tutoring
I am currently a EC teacher for 6th and 7th grade autism and behavior students. This means children with an IEP or 504 plan I have extension experience with. I know how to modify lessons to a student and how to get work done with the students. I teach all subjects this year. Last school year I instructed all middle school ages in the same small group setting. My back ground is science based but I have a passion for ELA
I have a PRAXIS 5543 mild to moderate
I am certified for young school aged Autism instruction
