Re: autism spectrum

I am the parent of a PDD-NOS/Asperger kid and I would highly encourage you to pursue this career - the Special Needs Education Allowance, which my son receives, is very generous and not only allowed him to attend pre-school (DOS normally does not pay for a child to attend preschool, unless the child has special needs) but also completely covered all of the therapeutic materials his OT recommended for him. While the frequent moves are not easy on him, we have the benefit of attending some excellent schools with amazing teachers. There are enough schools out there who can accept kids like mine, so I am not severely limited on where we can serve. Good luck!
