My nephew was diagnosed with Autism in April 2011. That was my first encounter with Autism and I knew nothing about the spectrum at that time. I started to research Autism and I was very happy to learn that there are many successful individuals with Autism around the world. I wanted to become a Special Education Needs teacher who is able to help those students with additional needs because I believe that every child matters and every child has the ability to learn. I realized that I needed to adapt my teaching strategies to meet the needs of each student in my class and that I should never give up on them easily even when no strategies seemed to be working. I also realized that every child is unique and I needed to try to understand everything that affects their way of learning. I have been fortunate to have studied MA in Special Education Needs and Inclusion, specializing in Autism and Dyslexia, with the University of Northampton and it has helped me to achieve my dream and passion of working with children who have additional needs in mainstream schools. I am also very proud to be a Learning Support Teacher at St Andrews International School Bangkok as this school is a school that practices inclusive education, that offers opportunities for children with special needs to be part of the community, helping them to become more independent, and empowering them to strive for a better life.
