"I believe that every child is different and as educators, we are always learning new ways to support children in the various aspects of development.
Using visuals when teaching is an important strategy. It can be customised according to the needs of the child from pictures to words for them to be able to look at and reflect with me."
"I believe that every child is unique and have their own distinctive set of strengths. An open mind makes all the difference!
One of the strategies I use is to try different mediums of learning with children, and exposing them to ample possibilities so they can identify their preferred styles . Understanding that every child learns and communicates differently provides radically better learning outcomes and results."
"I believe that when we put the child first and respect their needs, it is the beginning of building a great relationship.
The one strategy I use is to understand the child's interest so that I customise activities to motivate and encourage their learning. It is always important to make learning fun."
"I believe that being kind is more important than to be right. It is not necessary to have a brilliant mind that speaks, but a special heart that listens.
One of the strategy I use is to reinforce the child positively everytime, as it fosters better learning and enhances the child's confidence and understanding."
"I believe that love and respect must be shown and given to every child with Special Needs.
The one strategy I use is to listen to them verbally or through their body expressions. I acknowledge what they have to say (and sometime paraphrasing it and asking if that us what they mean by it) and respect it."
"I believe every child is a unique piece in a masterpiece puzzle. With what I do, I help each piece fit into its special and valuable place.
One strategy I use is taking the time to understand my child’s strengths and interests, as they are the best means of connecting us both, and the basis of the most effective tools for him/her."
"Life is a beautiful journey ,welcome and cherish every moment with a smile and a positive attitude . I believe attitude and confidence are key to get along with kids. It matters when working with children with special needs.
One of the strategy which I generally use is to sit in their shoes and see the world through their eyes which helps me to understand them better."
"Patience, Perseverance and Creativity are three daily reminders I carry with myself when teaching.
It is important to think out of the box and be creative in our strategies whenever we teach as learning situations are always dynamic. When we exude positive vibes, our students feel motivated and encouraged to carry on working with us."
"I believe that children with special needs come into our lives, leaving footprints on our hearts, and shower us with a special kind of love.
One of the strategy I use is segmentation as it break down targeted skill into smaller units and then synthesize the parts into a whole for my students so that they do not feel overwhelmed."
