Empowering People, Launching lives

Alex – Teaching Assistant

My role is so varied and each day is different!

Since graduating with a degree in creative writing and media communications, I have gained experience as a play assistant working with children in hospital as well as volunteering in special needs schools.

As a Teaching Assistant my job is very varied. I work with the School Administrator sorting out post, scanning and photocopying documents as well as covering reception during breaks. I also liaise with the Teachers, Supervisors and Therapists creating resources for them such as work sheets or using Communicate in Print to create PECS cards for the pupils. As Food Safety Officer I carry out food checks and help out at pupil lunchtime.

I feel very supported by my team members, BeyondAutism is a fantastic place to work.
